Because the first one filled up so fast, Lockwood’s Greenhouses is holding another seminar on pruning at 1 p.m. this Saturday, April 11 at Lockwood’s, 4484 Clark St., Hamburg.

The session will be taught by gardening expert Sally Cunningham. It will focus on damage from the Snowvember Storm, but will also cover common problems in the landscape caused by severe cold and animals grazing on your garden plants.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer period. You can even bring photos of particular shrubs or trees from your yard that you are concerned about.

The cost is $10 per person. There are only a few seats are left, so if you’re interested, register now online or call the store at 649-4684.

While you’re at Lockwood’s, drop off your tools to get them sharpened. They will call you when the tools are ready to be picked up. Click here for a list of prices and services.

Now is the time to do pruning on most plants. You want to prune before the plants leaf out. Otherwise, the plant has wasted a lot of energy creating those leaves that you later cut off. Since now is the time to prune, now is the time to sharpen your tools.

Lockwood’s will also hold a backyard birding seminar at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday, April 11. Marge Vollmer, who represents Aspen Song Wild Bird Food, will discuss how to attract birds to your yard. Aspen Song Wild Bird Food, the new brand that Lockwood’s is carrying, is made in New York State.

Spring is a great time to feed and attract birds to your yard because they are busy building nests and need the extra available nutrition for rearing their young.

The cost is $5 for this session. Register online or call the store at 649-4684 to reserve your spot
