The Oklahoma County Master Gardeners will hold their “Third Thursday” How-to gardening workshop, Thursday, September 18, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the OSU Cooperative Extension Service with a focus on “Pruning.”

“This is a great workshop for people to learn proper pruning techniques for the ornamental trees and shrubs in our landscapes,” commented Ray Ridlen, Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Horticulture Educator.
