Shrubs & Hedges

Return to Pruning

Shrubs and hedges are usually trimmed once a year.  Whether they flower in the spring or summer and on new or old growth determines the best time to prune.  Ask our staff for their expert advice.





Shrubs and hedges can be trimmed using a hedger for a sheared look or loppers for a feathered appearance.  Roses and some shrubs can be severely cut back to old wood and will regrow.  Others, like Junipers, must retain some green to avoid ending up with brown stubs.

Pyracantha can be pruned in many ways without damaging it, but Wisteria and grapes require special pruning.  Multistem plants like forsythia and lilacs require thinning of weak and old canes.
