The Takoma Horticultural Club presents

Pruning Woody Plants

Presented by Christopher Elenstar, Brookside Gardens

Wednesday, April 20, 7:30 - 9:00 pm

District of Columbia Library, Takoma Park Branch*
416 Cedar Street NW, D.C. 20012

At Brookside, Christopher Elenstar trains volunteer gardeners to prune its many trees and shrubs to best advantage. Whether you want to learn the basic principles of pruning trees and shrubs, or refresh your memory on techniques and strategies, this lecture will cover it all. We’ll discuss why, when, and how to prune all your favorite woody plants.

This event is FREE and open to public. No need to RSVP. Please bring a snack to share and wear a home-made nametag or one recycled from another event.

*Our April and May meetings will be held at the Takoma D.C. Library. This is where the club was founded in 1916, and where its meetings were held until 1950, when membership outgrew the facility. We hope to reach not only club members, but the wider Takoma Park/Takoma D.C Community in this 100th anniversary year. From the main Takoma Metro entrance, head west on Cedar Street to the corner of 4th St. The Library is on your left. Street parking is available.

The Takoma Horticultural Club (THC) welcomes gardeners from Takoma Park and surrounding areas, including DC, Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, and beyond. Our members love gardening, have very diverse interests and gardening experience, and enjoy many activities throughout the year. Our THC Calendar of Events includes lectures, two plant exchanges, two potluck dinners, an Open Garden series, workshops, lectures, special garden-related trips. Although many of our events are open to the public, more than half are for members only. And for $12, you can’t go wrong! Join us and increase your gardening pleasure!

The THC email list is open to all and is used to exchange information about gardening. You do not have to belong to the club to join in our email conversation! To join, simply follow the instructions.
