Although it may be cold and dreary outside, it’s the perfect time to take inventory of your deciduous trees and shrubs to see which plants would benefit the most from pruning. In this month’s episode, we’re sitting down with Extension Specialist in Commercial Horticulture, Dr. Andrew Ristvey. Dr. Ristvey is giving us the ins and outs on winter pruning.
We also have our:
- Bug of the Month (Winter Stoneflies) at 37:30
- Garden Tips of the Month at 45:55
- Native Plant of the Month ( American holly) at 49:00
