How to Prune and Renovate the Overgrown Garden

Covers basic pruning of ornamental trees and shrubs as well as creative solutions to the overgrown or over-planted garden. The types of pruning cuts are shown and discussed. The concept of the ‘pruning budget’ is introduced. Plants are divided into three categories according to their natural habits and pruning techniques given for each. Before and after slides of pruning and diagrams will be used to illustrate pruning for size reduction and pruning for definition (thinning). And attendees will gain insight into the process of yard renovation, where pruning is but one tool in restoring a garden.

HPSW will hold a summer sale  at Kandy Kroll’s house at 14555 Stone Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98155. Stone Ave is one block east of Highway 99 (Aurora). Take the 145th exit from I-5 and  head west towards Aurora Avenue. Turn right at Stone Ave N, and go down the hill. Kandy’s  house is at the bottom of the hill. 

You will be able to wander around the pots we have and choose the plants you want. You bring them down to the cashier station and we will price the pots there. Our prices are extremely reasonable. 

Please park on Kandy’s side of the road (west side) either outside Kandy’s yard or to the north. Don’t park on the east side, to allow the mail deliverer to reach the mailboxes there. 

We will be able to accept cash, credit cards and checks at this sale. 

Stone Ave N is a dead end street, but if you want refreshments, there are several choices on Aurora Avenue nearby, for example Kidd Valley is just south of 145th on Aurora, McDonald’s is north at about 150th; and there’s a good pizza place nearby. 

we hope to see you on July 2nd!
