Learn to prune. Class through Zoom. Feb 6, 2021 at 11:30 am MST.

From a personal perspective, I find pruning quite fun & satisfying. I hope anyone who signs up for this enjoys their new found skill...or learns a bit more to fine tune their already set skills!

I signed up for a refresher. 😉

    Thank you. I love pruning; it's like giving plants a haircut.

    @LaurieLovesLearning this looks interesting. Do you know the time zone? It doesn't say when you click the link?

    @annbeck62 Queen Creek Botanical Gardens is located close to (SE of) Phoenix, Arizona, so I am using that as a guideline to figure out the time of airing. It is at 11:30 am MST, 12:30 CST. I added the time in my original post.

    Here is a map of time zones:

    I asked them and they verified that it's MST (UTC-7); they don't use daylight savings time.

    That looks good, but it will interfere with an online wedding we are attending. (Two nephews and one niece are getting married in February, three weekends in a row. It would have been an exhausting month for the family if we could attend, but now it's just fun.)

    Its live! I wondered if I had figured my time wrong. I guess not. 😁

    Well, that was hard to hear with the mask on the presenter! I bet it would have been easier to hear in any demonstration that they may have had last spring. I wonder if microphone adjustment could have improved the sound?

    It was nice to "visit" somewhere warm...and see green grass & hear lots of what I would consider summer birds! Haha It is very cold here at the moment.

    I find it interesting that the western side (hot sun) is an important factor in that area, but it makes sense. It is not something that we need to concern ourselves with up here.

    I have never seen so many leaders get trimmed either! I suppose if the purpose is to keep the tree shorter, then this is the way to do it. By doing this, though, you are shortening the life of your tree.

    I did look into this with my indoor lemon tree and decided that trimming the leader was not what I wished to do.

    Anyway, did anyone learn anything new?
