Topic: How to Plant a Prune-Less Garden
How much pruning a garden needs often starts while plant shopping or when a new garden is designed. As gardens and gardeners mature, the amount of needed pruning may no longer match one’s time or energy for the task. Learn how plant choices, placement, and cultivation practices, along with those famous last words, “I can always prune it to keep it smaller” contribute to creating a prune-a-lot garden. Whether you are starting a whole new landscape or making changes within an established garden, this talk will help you identify changes to help maintain your garden with less frequent pruning.
