Stephens County Extension Pruning Workshop

During this time of the year I tend to begin receiving questions about when and how to go about pruning various types of plants.  To provide some insight on when and how to properly prune the Stephens County Extension office will be holding a pruning workshop on February 6th from 10:00 to 12:15 at Toccoa Falls College Gate Cottage. The goal of this workshop is to provide you with the insight you need to prune the plants in your landscape in in a timely and effective manner.

Dr. Bob Westerfield from the University of Georgia will be our guest speaker and brings a wealth of knowledge to the table as a horticulture specialist. Topics of the Workshop Include: Pruning ornamental trees, shrubs, perennial flowers and pruning fruit bearing trees, bushes, and vines. Hands on demonstration of pruning techniques will also be provided during the workshop.

This meeting will be very informative and help you understand when and how to prune the plants around your home. The cost for the workshop is $10.00 and can be paid via cash or check at the Stephens county extension office prior to the meeting. If you have any questions about the pruning workshop feel free to contact us at 706-779-5501 or by email at
