Hands-on, in person blueberry pruning workshop

Love juicy, sweet just-picked blueberries from your own bushes? Not sure how to keep them performing at their best? Join Master Gardeners for a workshop on blueberry pruning.

Step one: view a recorded video at home on blueberry pruning basics: when to prune, choosing which canes to cut, and where to cut them.

Step two: join us in-person at our Hazel Dell area demonstration blueberry field to practice your skills. This entails a 5 – to 10-minute walk up a steep hill. Those with mobility issues may drive. Dress for the weather and bring water, garden gloves, and a pair of sharpened loppers or hand bypass pruners if you have them. This activity is fully outdoors. Masks are optional. Space is limited and participants will work in small groups. (You may view the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7MOKxTUQFo without registering for the in-person portion.)

Saturday, Feb. 24 from 10am to noon. Cost: $10. (A limited number of reduced rate tickets are available for those with financial need. Email erika.d.johnson@wsu.edu. for details.) No admission without advance registration. For more information: (564) 397-5738 or Erika.d.johnson@wsu.edu. Visit us online at https://extension.wsu.edu/clark/community-education/workshops-events/.
