Getting Ready for Spring: Renewal Pruning for Overgrown Shrubs

Posted by Lora Zibman in Garden, Lawn | 0 comments

Do have you some shrubs that have become overgrown and no longer fit into your landscape?   Instead of digging them out and replacing them, consider severely pruning them. Most broad-leaf shrubs can be cut back severely (10-12 inches from the ground) now and will reward you with plenty of new foliage this summer.

Not all shrubs can be severely pruned, such as boxwood, so be sure to do your research before pruning.   Some plants that can be severely pruned are:

  • Buford Hollysevere pruning
  • Crape Myrtle
  • Cleyera
  • Abelia
  • Nandina
  • Ligustrum
  • Azalea
