Pruning Workshop at Garvan Gardens

March 7, 2017

What a great day it was!  It started with some wind, rain and thunder, but by noon it was sunny and beautiful.  We had a packed house for our all day pruning workshop at Garvan Gardens.  The workshop filled up with a waiting list, so it was a popular topic. I covered ornamentals, and then Randy Forst covered fruit trees, blueberries and grapes.  After lunch, we headed out to the southern inspiration garden for some hands-on demonstrations.    We had loads of questions and I think it was one of our most successful workshops.  Great group of people to work with, and then folks got to look at the gardens with tulips galore.  Some are just opening, while others are already spent.   It was still a cool day but out in the sun it felt pretty good.  I am back at the gardens on Thursday to tape TV.  I would encourage you to go visit soon so you can see the tulips in their prime. My next Garvan workshop is June 8 on pollinators.  Space is always limited due to the room size.

I made it home in plenty of time to walk the garden. My garden is really liking these rain showers. Seedlings seem to be growing daily and the transplants have established well in a short period of time.  I got close to 2 inches of rain in the past few days so we are off to a good start.  Now keep late freezes away and we will be good to go.
