Pruning Basics

Presented by
Lowe’s Greenhouses

Why prune?
Good pruning can’t fix poor landscape design.
Tools are important.
Timing is everything
Pruning stimulates growth.
Brown in fall…green in spring.
If it looks bad cut it off.
Shearing –vs- pruning.

Blooming - Immediately after bloom…when does plant set flower buds?
Evergreen - On new growth…avoid early fall.
Perennials - after bloom, height control, promote clean foliage, frost or loss of appeal.
Death and damage removal.
Vines – Clematis, wisteria, grapes, etc.

Pruning how to do
Rejuvenation - 30% per year.
Shaping - Know your plant growth habit.
Growth control - rampant plants need rampant pruning.
Structure - Clean out the inside to appreciate plant forms. Shade tree development.
Roses – Type of rose?
Tricky sub shrubs
