Shrubs and trees add so much interest in the garden, by pruning them into a wide range of shapes and forms you can add an extra layer of interest as well as incorporating a living sculpture! In this one-day workshop we will explore the huge range you can achieve and the techniques used to shape them. We will be using the stunning gardens at Sculpture by the Lakes for onsite demonstrations and seeing how they use creative pruning within the gardens.
