Summer Pruning for Woody and Herbaceous Plants

Pruning: Removing suckers

Summer provides a second and sometimes much needed time to prune a variety of spring flowering trees and shrubs and to help perennial flowering plants look their best. Summer pruning helps you to improve overall structure and size of your woody plants or boost fruit and flower production in fruit trees and shrubs. Extension Agent Kirsten Conrad will walk you through the how, when, and why to do summer pruning on hedges, multi-stem shrubs, small trees and perennial ornamentals. With these best practices, your pruning will result in healthier and fuller growth, better flowers and fruit, and more attractive landscaping.
