Floretum Garden Club to hold Saturday Pruning Tips workshop Saturday

The Edmonds Floretum Garden Club will be having its second event in this season’s series of Saturday Workshops Feb. 22 from 10 a.m. until noon. Sally Wassall, Master Gardener Emeritus, will present “Pruning Tips for the Home Garden” with a focus on fruit and flowering shrubs. She will cover basic practices for a variety of plants appropriately pruned at this time of year.

Wassall is an active member of the Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation at Mount Vernon and the Edmonds Floretum Garden Club. She grew up on a 10-acre mixed farm in Surrey, BC, which she and her husband also farmed for 20 years. There they pruned fruit trees, flowering shrubs, fruiting shrubs, and roses. Currently, they are renovating a garden in Bellingham and are also caring for the garden at their home in Edmonds.

The presentation will be in the meeting room of Coldwell Banker Bain at 108 5th Ave. S. in Edmonds. All are welcome. Donations are accepted. For more information, contact Janice Noe at janicenoe@comcast.net or call her at 425-774-4991.
