Program Description

There is more to pruning than understanding how to make proper cuts. You also need to know how the plant will respond and what it will look like in the future. This should be dictated by the plant’s natural growth habit, growth rate, flowering season, height, and spread. All plants react to pruning cuts in essentially the same way; as long as you learn the general rules, you’ll be able to predict how your cuts will impact future growth.

Instructor: Emma Erler joined UNH Extension as the Education Center Program Coordinator in 2017. Her expertise is in landscape horticulture, and she works with Master Gardener volunteers to answer the thousands of questions submitted annually to the Infoline. She also designs and delivers workshops and presentations about gardening and nature for the state’s gardening public.
