Learning how to prune properly is important to the appearance of your plants. Incorrect pruning techniques make shrubs and trees look unnatural and actually creates more maintenance.
- Shrubs maintain a full, natural shape on their own. Practice selective pruning vs. the hedge clipper method.
- Prune flowering shrubs after they bloom.
- Trees may need minimal pruning as they age. Remove dead or dying branches, sucker growth and criss crossing branches. Other than this, leave them alone.
