  • Pruning spring flowering shrubs

    June 1 is the official cut off that marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer.  
    Does it matter that you know? Yes, if you want to properly prune because pruning after June 1 could result in no blooms next year.
    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas, rhododendrons and many others were all able to do their thing without a major frost or freeze here at the farm.
