Event Details

The Program:  Come learn what the area’s expert pruners have taught us! Learn how to prune your Japanese maple, or how to gently guide your gardener’s pruning. You’ll get advice on the proper growing conditions for your tree, the best pruning tools to use, the proper types of cuts, the time of year to make certain cuts, and how to decide what to cut in order to create a beautiful, aesthetically-pruned Japanese maple. Lots of show and tell, including Japanese maple specimens. If you like, bring your hand pruners so you can practice cuts with our one-on-one guidance. We will stay beyond noon, if needed, to answer your questions. Rain cancels the event.

The Speaker: Betsey Finn and Donna Miller are Marin Master Gardeners who completed its two-year intensive Pruning Guild training program, and have continued to learn from and prune with the Bay Area’s expert pruners.
