Shape, trim, bloom! There’s more to trimming a plumeria tree than simply chopping away. Learn how to correctly prune and shape your trees in this hands-on workshop in the LA Arboretum’s plumeria grove. After in-depth instructions covering why, how, and where to trim branches, you will work with experienced grove volunteers to prune one or more of the grove’s trees.

*Carts will be available to shuttle participants to class location.

About The Instructor

Since 2001, Diana has been growing plumeria in her drought tolerant, coastal garden and happily passes along her knowledge to the community. In 2014, she kick-started a volunteer effort to renovate, expand and improve the Arboretum’s grove of over 100 trees. She firmly believes in sharing her expertise and lessons learned via in-grove workshops and the annual Plumeria Day event.
