Sharp pruning tips for gardeners in New Plymouth

Top techniques for winter pruning will be covered at a free public workshop at Tupare in New Plymouth on Sunday (10 August).

Aimed at the home gardener, the workshop will particularly focus on pruning ornamental shrubs and climbers such as hydrangeas and camellias.

It’s a good opportunity for people to learn good pruning techniques for their favourite floral displays, says the Taranaki Regional Council’s Regional Gardens Manager, Greg Rine.

Sunday’s workshop runs from 2pm to 4pm at Tupare, 487 Mangorei Rd. It is part of a year-round programme of workshops and other events at Tupare, Pukeiti and Hollard Gardens, the three heritage properties owned and administered by the Taranaki Regional Council on behalf of the people of the region.
