Pruning Crape Myrtle

This hands-on workshop will begin with a presentation discussing the Crape Myrtle: its origins, how to choose the variety that would fit best in your landscape, and how to plant and prune. Following the presentation, we will go outside to the Crape Myrtles, review what we learned, decide what shape would be best for each tree, and go about pruning them. Please bring work gloves and pruners.
