Pruning 101
Whether managing catastrophic damage from recent wild weather, pruning for shape or for productivity, the how-tos of pruning remain an elusive mystery even for many experienced gardeners. Join Master Gardener Lee Boltwood for a hands-on workshop demonstration of the basics of good pruning practice, from the best tools to use, and sanitation, to techniques for felling a mature tree.

Lee Boltwood Bio
Lee Boltwood is an original member of Master Gardeners of Ottawa-Carleton, having been in the Master Gardeners’ program since 1986. She has gardened for over fifty years, forty of them in Ottawa on over two acres with sandy soil. She is an experienced, practical gardener, a past-president of the Stittsville-Goulbourn Horticultural Society, has a special interest in trees and shrubs, grows her own food, maintains a water garden and has interests in many other aspects of gardening. Lee is so widely recognized as a lynch-pin of the local horticultural scene that, in 2022, then-Mayor Jim Watson dedicated a new park in Stittsville as the Lee Boltwood Park.
