To prune or not to prune, that is every gardener’s question. And is fall really a good time to give your shrubs a new look? Listen to Jayme Jenkins and guest host Robin Haglund (Teresa’s vacationing in Bologna, Italy!) discuss the answer to this very question and more.
On the other hand, some people take their creative pruning skills to a whole new level. Later in the episode, Jayme interviews Billy Goodnick about the environmental and ugly dont’s of pruning. You better watch out, or your front yard masterpiece may end up on Billy’s Crimes Against Horticulture list.
Scroll down to see the pruning specimens Billy and Jayme discuss during the interview. Scroll a bit further to catch Nest In Style’s fall giveaway details! And if you get a chance, send my lovely podcast co-host a Buon divertimento tweet at @SeasonalWisdom. Grazie!
