UPDATE: THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE TAUGHT BY DR. BILL CLINE!
Blueberries are a delicious ‘must-have’ in any garden and can be an economic boon for many commercial producers. But, like anything else, your plants need a little TLC to keep them in tip-top shape for years to come. Yearly pruning helps decrease disease pressure, stimulate plant growth and promote large berry size. During this hands-on workshop you will learn the ‘ins and outs’ of blueberry plants, how to tell the age of the canes and how to properly prune. We have a large number of plants to practice on and get comfortable with pruning before you head home to your own.

* This workshop is geared more toward the backyard gardener but all are welcome! *

This workshop will be held outside, so please layer up and dress appropriately!

Participants are encourage to bring their own pruners and loppers. We will have several pairs to borrow, if needed.
