Stop “Crape Murder” - Pruning for Form Workshop

Unfortunately, we are having to cancel this annual workshop due to COVID related issues. We are very sorry about this, as we pride ourselves in being able to share the correct manner to prune trees and shrubs. We hope that everyone will stay healthy as we all continue to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors at Aldridge Gardens.

$20 Members/$25 Non-Members
Class size is limited to 15 participants.

Rip Weaver, CLARB, ASLA and Executive Director, Aldridge Gardens

Learn the correct guidelines to pruning trees and shrubs, how to eliminate “crape murder,” and the best ways to remove unwanted limbs and stems to bring new vigor to your landscape.

Aldridge Gardens’ Executive Director Rip Weaver will teach participants how to correctly prune crape myrtles and other ornamentals. Using branches from the grounds, he'll demonstrate and show you how to correctly prune some of our favorite shrubs and specific landscape plants. Bring gloves and hand pruners to get a feel for how it should be done.

Depending on the weather, this class will be held either outside under our pavilion or in our education building.
