Have you driven around the Birmingham area and noticed ugly knotted, gnarled, pitiful scars and wounds on a once-lovely crape myrtle? Because many butcher these ornamental trees, many homeowners think they also must top these once beautiful plants.
Join Rip Weaver on Jan. 19 as he teaches how to correctly prune crape myrtles and other ornamentals and, weather permitting, he will also demonstrate in the Gardens the pruning of several of our favorite shrubs and specific landscape plants. Bring your own hand pruners if you wish to prune.
Come witness the reasons for and steps to pruning ornamentals in your landscape and how to eliminate “crape murder.”
