With spring just around the corner, it’s time to take care of your blueberry plants now to ensure the best crop possible.
Blueberries are nutritious and easy to grow, but do require regular pruning to keep them from becoming overgrown and unproductive.
WSU Clark County Extension Master Gardeners are presenting a workshop on blueberry pruning on Saturday, February 16th from 10:00 AM to noon.
Learn the pruning basics, such as when to prune, which canes to prune, and where to cut them. There will also be discussions on garden sanitation, tools and how “pruning is part of a sustainable and organic approach to blueberry plant care.”
After the classroom instruction, you will head out to an on-site blueberry patch to practice your skills and ask questions. Dress for the weather and bring water, garden gloves, and a pair of sharpened loppers or hand bypass pruners if you have them.
Advance registration is required and this class does fill up quickly. The location will be given out upon registration. There is a $5 fee to attend.
