MNLA thanks you for your patience as things develop and transition to a virtual platform.  Please be sure to check back regularly for updated information on this event.

Taught by: Dr. Bob Schutzki, Professor Emeritus at MSU, Project Specialist at MNLA

These 1-hour episodes will address proper pruning and planting techniques, plant management and identification, both new varieties and classic standbys, and more! We’ll take it from the top, starting with shade and ornamental trees, and then work our way through the many levels of the landscape down to annuals and groundcovers. We’ll also take field trips to MNLA member growers and retail nurseries, to check out new and upcoming plants!
