Classes & Workshops
Each year PlantAmnesty expert instructors teach pruning techniques in our twelve-part Master Pruner Series. Topics include: artistic pruning, fruit trees, landscape renovation, Japanese garden pruning, ornamental vines, pruning roses, and species-specific tutorials. This series provides students with a solid base in the science and practice of selective pruning. Students are given access to a broad range of pruning information at each two-hour presentation.
Classes are open to master gardeners, landscapers, gardeners, horticulture students as well as the general public. Students may complete Master Pruner classes individually or work toward a Master Pruner certification by completing the entire series. Classes are currently being offered online only.

This class ends on a humorous note with photos of the Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre. Taught by Christina PfeifferFind out more »
