  • PRUNING PALMS - Tuesday, October 14, 2014 - 10:00am to 11:00pm
The next meeting of the Men’s Garden Club of Englewood will be held on Tuesday morning, October 14 at the Elsie Quirk Library in Englewood. The meeting will start promptly at 10:00am in the second floor meeting room. Our guest speaker will be Robert Mertens who will talk about Palm Pruning.
 
Join us at this meeting and find out what a healthy, properly pruned palm should look like? Contrary to popular belief, a properly fertilized and pruned palm should have a round crown with green fronds right to the bottom, not crowns that resemble feather dusters. In addition, pruning palms improperly can attract harmful insects and spread serious diseases. Learn how proper pruning can increase the health and vigor of palms and reduce the use of pesticides.
