Tree and Shrub Hedges Pruning Trimming

When to Prune

The best time to prune depends upon the plant.

  • Trim early-spring-flowering shrubs right after they bloom.
  • Summer-flowering plants should be clipped in winter or early spring.
  • For non-flowering plants, trim after new growth has completely formed.

You can do light trimming throughout the year.


Good to Know

Pruning directs growth, allows light and air to reach the plant and removes the excess weight of damaged and diseased branches.

General Shrub Pruning

Damaged, dead or diseased stems can be a nuisance to shrubs and plants as they attract insects. These stems should be removed when you see them.

Instructions

Before you start, lay a tarp down to make cleanup easier.
