From promoting new growth to maintaining a desired aesthetic, shrub pruning offers vast benefits … and we have all the tips and secrets you’ll need to get started! In this walk-and-talk class that starts in our Visitor Center Auditorium, then moves out into our Gardens, learn when and how to prune shrubs properly—and why shrubs require different pruning techniques than other plants. Get ready for a hands-on experience, where you’ll first observe how to perform important pruning techniques, then try them out yourself!


In Longwood's Visitor Center Auditorium and throughout the Gardens. 

This program will take place partially or entirely outdoors. Please dress for the weather and wear footwear suited for walking on uneven paths and through wet areas.
