Dormant Season Pruning and Care for Deciduous Fruit Trees and Roses

Join us for this hands-on workshop on how to prune your deciduous fruit trees and roses during our ”dormant” season.

Learn from tree experts Patty Berg and Rachele Melious on the important aspects of pruning and care, to make your trees more productive with better quality fruit within a smaller backyard orchard tree habit.

Roy Wilburn will also show you the basics of how to prune your roses with tips on fertilization and disease control to obtain large blooms of America’s favorite flower.

Bring your gloves, bypass pruners, loppers and pruning saws if you have them, and join in on the fun.
