Gwinnett Co. – Master Gardeners B. Dorfman “Feel Empowered to Prune” @ Bethesda Senior Center
Feb 17 @ 11:30 am

Many gardeners feel uneasy about pruning because once that cut is made, it’s GONE! If you’re unsure about when/how to pruneplants or shrubs, it’s hard to commit to it at all. In her February 17, 2020 presentation titled “Corrective Pruning – Feel Empowered to Prune”, Barbara Dorfman will help gardeners cut more confidently. She’ll suggest tools that make the job easy, explain how shrubs and trees will respond to various cuts, and even offer tips on how to renew overgrown or butchered shrubs.

After earning her Master Gardener certification and studying horticulture at Gwinnett Technical College in the 1980’s, Barbara worked in sales and design at wholesale and retail nurseries. Since 2003 she has been self employed as a landscape consultant and garden club speaker. Her presentation on corrective pruning, “Feel Empowered to Prune” has been popular with the Georgia Native Plant Society, Master Gardeners, and garden clubs. An active member of Georgia Native Plant Society, Barbara promotes the use of native plants to sustain local wildlife and teaches homeowners pruning and practical ways to eliminate exotic invasive plants.

The Gwinnett County Master Gardeners’ Association is hosting this presentation at the Bethesda Senior Center, 225 Bethesda Church Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044. The public is welcome at no charge – bring a sandwich and join us for lunch at 11:30am, or just come for the program beginning promptly at 12pm.
