Several of our teammates had the privilege of attending a pruning class this month at the Missouri Botanical Garden taught by Benjamin Chu. Chu is the Horticultural Supervisor at the Missouri Botanical Garden, having been a part of their family for almost three decades.
Chu provided an overview on how pruning is used to control plant size and shape, enhance beauty, correct damage, decrease risk of disease, and increase flower and fruit yields. He discussed proper pruning techniques, tools and tool care, and timing of pruning. Chu focused on how to maximize beneficial effects for trees, shrubs, and evergreens, demonstrating with a live pruning demonstration.
