Annual plant sale canceled
The AGC board has addressed the issue of having plant sale during our last several meetings. Due to the Pandemic rules governing behavior outdoors, etc. there will be no plant sale this year. We are terribly disappointed, but wish to err on the side of caution as well.
Upcoming Programs & Events
Due to coronavirus restrictions no regular in person meetings are scheduled. Programs on various topics will be presented via Zoom on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. A Zoom link will be sent to members a few days before the program.
APRIL 21 – Jen Kettell on Pruning
“Avoiding the Green Helmet”
Jen Kettell, of Radiant Leaf Consulting, will help us learn how to prune shrubs at this time of year. In some ways, Jen says, pruning flowering shrubs can be a bit more complicated than pruning trees. When shrubs have been improperly pruned or just left to their own devices, they begin to resemble what she calls “the green helmet”.
In this virtual workshop you will learn how to avoid the green helmet by selective and timely pruning using her 10-step guide along with the appropriate tools and personal protective gear.
