Winter Pruning

The March 11 meeting of the Milford Garden Club at 10:30, First Congregational Church Parish House, 10 Union St.

Find out why late winter is an ideal time to start pruning trees, shrubs and woody vines. Learn about pruning objectives and techniques, appropriate tools, personal protective gear and where to seek additional resources. There will be a pop-up shop where you will have the opportunity to purchase the tools needed to complete gardening tasks.
