Prune like a pro

Adam Bigelow Adam Bigelow

Learn how to give your fruit trees some love with a workshop starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, at Winding Stair Nursery in Franklin. 

Horticulturist Adam Bigelow will discuss tools and techniques to prune and train fruit-bearing trees to optimize their performance over the coming year. The class will last about three hours, offering plenty of time for participants to ask questions about their own trees. Hands-on practice is possible, but participants should bring their own tools.

Registration is required, with cost on a sliding scale from $5 to $25. In case of inclement weather, the class will be rescheduled to Feb. 10. Sign up at
