Fernandina Mulch & Stone held a "Garden Social" recently. Nassau County Extension Director/Horticulture Agent Becky Jordi demonstrated how to inspect and prune shrubs prior to planting in your landscape. Jordi mentioned its important to check the root ball and to prune any circling roots, which would eventually strangle the shrub. Dead branches should also be removed prior to planting.
