Ward’s Nursery and Garden Center
Are your shrubs a crowded mass of leafy-stems? Do they have few flowers and look dead in the center? Proper pruning from planting through maturity can help improve form and aesthetics, boost disease and pest resistance, and maximize fruit and flower production. Tom and Melissa will explain and entertain while demonstrating various techniques for enhancing the structure and health of your favorite shrubs, ornamentals and hedges.
All classes are free but due to limited seating, Ward’s requests patrons register online at wardsnursery.com or by calling 413-528-0166. Classes fill up quickly.
