The PTSA for my school held an auction, and I offered 2 hours of light gardening and consultation as an item to be sold. The consultation was specified to be about deer resistant planting and raising and braiding garlic ( 2 areas of knowledge and experience for me). I just got an e-mail from the woman who bought my time at the auction, and she wants help with pruning, plant identification, watering,and fertilizing. I can help her with the latter two, and I may be able to identify many items in her yard, but I know nothing about pruning, just come look at my yard. If anyone can advise me about what plants can be pruned at this time of year and/or which should definitely not be pruned I can at least give her some information about this. I want her to be happy with my services, though I can't do everything she expected. I did get a nice pair of bypass pruners for X-mas, planning to learn something this year, but I don't intend to experiment on someone else's plants.
