Chris S presented an informative hands on program about Practical Gardening Techniques. She generously invited club members to her garden where she showed us where and how to prune and divide. Fortunately we had a lovely spring day and everyone enjoyed and learned from her excellent demonstration. She inspired us to prune and divide in our own gardens and get ready for the coming season.
