Understand why we prune and how plants respond. Learn the basic rules of pruning and when to tackle specific plants. The course will consist of demonstrations with the opportunity to ask questions, and a practical session in which you will try out the skills you have learned.
For those who have done the course before, we are hoping to practise on shrubs and climbers this year.
Contact the Courses Organiser for an application form or any enquiries about the course or LHS membership. Places are limited to 12. Please book by 30 January 2019.

LHS Chairman Alan Oatway's travels provide a source of fascinating information about plants from around the world. In this talk he will show some of the flowering plants seen in the provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan, in habitats ranging from sub-tropical jungle to the occasional visit to alpine territory. Predominating will be the areas in between, including a host of shrubs, understorey woodlanders and swathes of meadow plants - most of which would look wonderful in our gardens.
