Course Overview

Many popular garden plants look great when first planted, but are trickier to prune than many realize, resulting in a funky-looking plant a few seasons later. This course from gardening expert Cass Turnbull offers pruning techniques for notoriously difficult to prune plants like rhododendrons, hydrangeas, callicarpa, and viburnum bodnantense. Aside from learning proper pruning practices, you'll also learn how to transplant shrubs without disturbing important roots and address plant diseases.
