Heather's Helpful Hint

It's Time To Prune
November 03, 2009

Finish pruning shrubs and ornamental trees before growth starts. Now is an ideal time (except for spring flowering shrubs like azaleas and rhododendrons). Prune spring flowering shrubs immediately after they flower and if you have any questions, please ask one of our nursery experts.

Avoid pruning in damp weather to prevent the introduction of fungal spores and bacteria into the plant as a result of a fresh cut.

While you are at it, now is a great time to fertilize trees, roses, shrubs, and evergreens. Remember that a healthy plant, like a healthy person, resists disease and injury.
