Saturday, May 8, 9:00 – 12:00 – New Planting Techniques for Trees and Shrubs

This workshop, to be held Saturday, May 8, from 9 am – noon at Garden in the Woods in Framingham,  features up-to-date information on the best way to install woody plants. Learn from instructor Rolf Briggs how to avoid costly errors, and see how it is not significantly harder to do the job correctly. You will learn the proper way to dig and prepare a planting hole, unpack from “ball and burlap” or containers, water, mulch, and stake. This hands-on workshop is valuable for landscaper professionals, home gardeners, and even homeowners who hire others to do their planting, as crucial errors are made even by landscape professionals. The fee to attend is $28 if you are a member of NEWFS, and $33 if you have yet to join.  Register at
