Course Overview

If you know pruning basics, there's one final frontier—what expert gardener Cass Turnbull calls the shearables, the hackables, and the untouchables. Find out about these plants and their needs in this course. Begin by reviewing some basic types of shrubs and pruning cuts, then explore the rich and varied world of shearable shrubs (like lavender), hackable plants (like dogwood), and the oh-so-sensitive untouchables (like witch hazel). In addition, get countless gardening and landscaping tips!
