Now is the time to prune!
Winter is a great time to prune your trees and shrubs while they are dormant. The Texas Tech University Greenhouse crew and our PSS 4313 students have been diligently pruning the trees and clearing out the brush at the gardens to prepare for our color program this spring and summer. Feel free to walk the gardens and enjoy the change of seasons in the garden!
