Would you like to get some guidance on how to prune your own trees and shrubs without fear? Come see us at Sky Nursery on Saturday, March 5, when we put on our sixth annual Prune-a-thon. The Plant Amnesty experts will offer free pruning classes on topics like Japanese maples, fruit tree, hydrangeas, and more!
Need some ideas to help you create your dream garden with a free consultation? Just bring along a photo of an area in your yard you would like to rework and our professional garden designers will give your practical suggestions to suit your location and garden style.
Don’t miss the PlantAmnesty booth where we highlight shearing horrors (like poodled shrubs) and provide handouts so you can avoid the embarrassment of these unsightly faux pas, along with great information on perfect pruning practices. We will be joined by some of our horticultural sisters, like the Master Gardeners, Seattle Tilth, and the Seattle Fruit Tree Society.
New this year: Stump the Experts! Bring your really tough pruning questions to the All Knowing answer booth.
Experts, including PlantAmnesty’s founder, Cass Turnbull, will have the answers to your questions. (If we don’t have the answer, we’ll make one up.)
Come to learn and stay to buy—a portion of Sky’s sales for the day will be donated to Plant Amnesty to support their educational programs.
If you are available and inclined to help us put on the best Prune-a-thon ever, we need people for set up and take down, boothers, greeters, and more! Contact Pandora Touart at 206-783-9813, x3.
