Wow what a great day to be outside yesterday and the opportunity to prune to our hearts content at Laudholm. Now that you have some experience in pruning, I would suggest you re-read Pruning Woody Landscape Plants
I thought the class and all the native and invasive plants we saw is the perfect lead in to this week’s class on Native and Invasive Species with Lois Stack. To prepare for class please review from the chapter on Plants for the Maine Landscape the following fact sheets:
Gardening to Conserve Maine’s Native Landscape: Plants to Use and Plants to Avoid
Maine Invasive Plants – review the fact sheets, pay special attention the invasive species we saw so much of Asiatic Bittersweet, Japanese Barberry and Shrubby Honeysuckles
Here is a link on How to Use a Weed Wrench — for removing invasive plants. Your classmate, Amy Beth will be bringing one in for demonstration.
See you Wednesday!
