Pruning hydrangeas: a how-to program – taking place January 7

“Pruning Hydrangeas: A How-To” will be held outside on Saturday, 1/7, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. 

Hydrangea Paniculatas are probably the most vibrant, reliable, fool proof, and lovely members of the hydrangea family.  Their white pinecone shaped flowers never fail to bloom and the plant can grow 5-6 feet in a year if you let it get out of control.

Trained by the Hydrangea Curator at Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, our hosts Gene Boylan and Connie Spiros will show you when and how to properly prune your Paniculatas so you will get big blooms that start out white and over time “antique” into the most lovely rose-colored blooms.  Advance registration is required at our website, and we will meet outside on the Library front terraces.

Please join us to learn this gardening skill first-hand! 

Events are kindly sponsored by the granting agencies and collaborative organizations mentioned previously, and by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.  They are free and open to all.  You may find our website at:, and for any questions, Email [email protected] or call the Reference Dept. at (617) 898-4964.  The Milton Public Library is located at 476 Canton Avenue.
