Event Update

garden pruning eventgarden pruning event

On January 25, 2014, TPRFG welcomed local gardeners who came to the garden and joined us for hands-on pruning. We all worked and learned together getting our Apple, Almond and Nectarine trees in shape for Spring. We also had the good fortune having Greg Ellis of ONE COOL EARTH join us to identify the varieties, growth habits and how to cut back our Hedge Row of California native plants. We're looking forward to him joining us again in the Spring to explore the use of more natives in our garden. Water conservation is our driving force these days.

We will be having another pruning session with the public when we cut back the grapes. One of our guests has experience and will be showing us what he knows. This has been a lot of fun for all.

See the Links page for some pruning resources.
