Shrub Pruning - an essential gardener's guide

A full day workshop with Mary Payne

at the Walled Garden Treberfydd on Thursday 13 September 2018

In a practical workshop Mary Payne will explain and illustrate this essential aspect of garden maintenance. During the day participants will consider pruning objectives and techniques for a wide range of shrubs. Practical demonstrations will be given using the wide range of shrubs in both the Walled Garden and the more mature shrubs in the grounds of Treberfydd House.

The workshop will run from 10am to 4.30pm including a two course lunch. Coffee will be available beforehand from 9.30am and tea and cake afterwards from 4.30pm, so there will be plenty of time to wander around the Walled Garden and buy plants, herbs, vegetables, and flowers.

Cost £110 per head, booking online at
