Why do we pinch geraniums and not spruce trees? How does soft new growth on a tree become hard and woody? Why can we propagate plants but not people from cuttings? As gardeners, sometimes our experience and learning give us an intuitive sense of how a plant will grow, what it needs, and how it will respond to our interaction with it (pruning, trellising, fertilizing, mulching, etc.). Jonathan will explore some of the science and mystery behind why and how a plant does what it does.
