  • Free Pruning Workshop

    Green thumb enthusiasts were in for a treat last weekend as the WVU Extension Master Gardeners hosted a free pruning workshop. The workshop aimed to educate participants on how and when to trim and shape woody plants.

    Held at the Demonstration Garden on the State Fair Grounds, the workshop was led by Dr. Mira Danilovich, an Associate Professor and WVU Extension Specialist with over 30 years of experience in horticulture. Dr. Mira, as she prefers to be called, has previously led several pruning and grafting training sessions and serves as Consumer Horticulture Specialist and State Coordinator for the WV Master Gardener Program at WVU.

    Participants were encouraged to bring their pruning shears to try out their skills during the workshop. No advanced registration was required, and the event drew in nearly a dozen people who were eager to learn more about proper pruning techniques.

    The WVU Extension Master Gardener Program offers Basic/Level 1 and Advanced/Level 2 training programs that provide in-depth horticultural training to garden enthusiasts. These programs cover various topics, including pest management, plant propagation, and soil health. In addition, Master Gardeners participate in community gardening and beautification projects across the state.

    If you missed the recent pruning workshop, don't worry, the WVU Extension Master Gardener Program will be hosting another one later this fall. Stay tuned for more information on how you can participate and hone your gardening skills.
