  • Yes, June 1 is the cut off date that officially marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer. Does it matter that we know? Yes, if you want to prune properly.

    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas and rhododendrons all were able to do their thing without a touch of frost or freeze.

    We deserve that from time to time, but in order to keep these shrubs in shape we need to prune them from time to time, as well.
