Enjoy an easy, beautiful, affordable summer vacation.
It’s Pruning Time! There’s more than raking that can be done in the landscape garden right now. It’s the perfect time to prune many of your woody shrubs and small trees. Fruit trees, blueberries, hydrangeas, wisteria, clematis, dogwood, potentillas, lavendar, and many others are best pruned in early spring, and will look and flower better. I prune by taking out selected branches, not by shearing, and leave your shrubs in their natural shape. Now is also a great time to transplant house plants, which are starting to respond to spring sunshine. Master Gardener, Horticulture degree, tenth year in business. Call for a free consult. Have clippers will travel!

Call me for more information and free estimates. Joanna Lavan 207-833-5841. (03/27)
