Columbus, OH Mt. Airy, NC Seattle, WA. - Pruning trees and perennials can be very beneficial. It helps shape the plant while promoting future growth. But if done incorrectly, it can do more harm than good. To help viewers understand the truth about pruning, we bring in the experts, such as best-selling garden author Tracy Desabato-Aust, to demonstrate the science behind the practice and offer real life examples of how to do it correctly.
