We prune many perennial plants, including aronia, elderberry, currant, honeyberry & fruit trees in the winter and spring. Here Mable is inspecting raspberry canes. Photo: Arbor Farmstead
We take cuttings from native plants when they are dormant in the winter so we can grow more. Pictured is red osier dogwood & willows, which do well in wet areas and are well loved by pollinators for their relatively early blooms. Photo: Arbor Farmstead
We intentionally try and keep some areas “scruffy” to provide overwintering habitat for wildlife, including pollinators. Photo: Arbor Farmstead
