Friends of Ballard Corners Park

Pruning demonstration and apple tree pruning

Thursday, January 24, 2008 from 12pm-3pm (*)

For this practical and informative work party we’ll be learning about pruning fundamentals and techniques, and we’ll be supervised as we prune the two large apple trees on site. The focus will be to prune the trees primarily for overall health and appearance, and not to stimulate fruit production.

Jody Blecksmith, NW Senior Gardener from Seattle Parks and Recreation will be instructing us, and she will be assisted by Miriam Preus, Pro Parks Senior Gardener. If you are interested in participating please contact Gabriella Moller at gabriella _at_ seanet _dot_ com or by phone at (206) 782-3238.

*The date is dependent upon the weather – if it’s poor weather for pruning (e.g. freezing or unseasonably warm temperatures) we’ll have to postpone it. All registered participants will be notified in the event of a rescheduling. Please contact Gabriella with any questions.
