Ever wondered why flowering shrubs are turned into 'green blobs'?

Why would someone take a lovely blooming shrub and turn it into a ball?

I'm here to tell you that flowering shrubs aren't meant to be shaped into balls, cupcakes, or squares.

And, you know what else? It's not healthy for the shrub, costs more money, and frankly is ugly!

Do you wish you knew the right way to prune shrubs in the desert garden?

Perhaps this sounds like you...

  • You would love more color in your garden but have a landscape filled with shrubs shaped into unnatural shapes.
  • You're pretty sure your landscaper doesn't have a clue how to maintain your shrubs the right way.
  • You have caught your landscaper pruning off all the flowers from your shrubs.
  • You're tired of paying someone to simply 'mow, blow, and go' with little to show for it.

Pleasure to meet you!

Hi! I'm Noelle Johnson.

  • You may know me better as 'AZ Plant Lady', horticulturist, landscape consultant, and author of the popular gardening blog, Ramblings From a Desert Garden.
  • I've built a successful career as a landscape consultant where I help people like you learn how to garden in a challenging climate.
  • But, I didn't always know how to garden in the desert - there is a long trail of dead plants in my past to prove it. I killed just about everything I planted. However, I knew that there had to be a way to learn how and I was determined to figure it out.
  • After learning my degree in horticulture and a 20+ year career, I have been helping desert dwellers learn how to be successful in creating their own landscape in a hot, dry climate.
  • Since then, I've worked with the Associated Press, Houzz, NPR, PBS, Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine, and the folks at Water Use It Wisely. All, to help people like you garden in the desert.

IMAGINE if you knew how...

  • To prune flowering shrubs to preserve their attractive natural shapes
  • To go out and prune with confidence the right way
  • Know how to work with your landscaper (if you have one) to prevent 'poodled' shrubs
  • To have an attractive landscape instead of one filled with green 'balls'

There is a way to have a landscape filled with colorful, blooming shrubs that takes less work and money.

Introducing my Shrub Pruning Workshop for Desert Gardens!

This is my popular pruning workshop where I provide you with the knowledge you need to prune flowering shrubs the correct way.

Pruning shrubs isn't that hard, especially when done properly.

In fact, most flowering shrubs only need pruning once to twice a year!

Normally, my Shrub Pruning Workshop sells for $97.

But, for the next 48 hours, you can purchase it for just $79!

Yes! I want to say 'goodbye' to ugly shrubs!

Here Is What People Are Saying

My husband and I bought a house earlier this year. We consulted with Noelle to learn more about the plants and how to maintain them.

She is a fountain of knowledge and patiently and clearly explained how to prune and otherwise care from them.


We are from the Midwest so everything is new to us here. We had a good landscaping service but never felt comfortable with their skills.

Noelle turned out to be the turning point for our garden. She guided us on correcting pruning issues and gave us back control and hope for a successful garden here in Arizona.


I learned so much from you and now I’m more excited about my garden and its future.

I’ve started the work you suggested and now that I know what I’m doing, I’m enjoying it tremendously.
