Shrubs – When To Prune

Q: I have yet to prune the shrubbery in my yard. Is it better to wait until we get warmer winter weather?

A: It won’t matter to the plants either way. They are about to go into deep dormancy and pruning won’t harm them. Avoid pruning spring-blooming shrubs or mophead hydrangeas though. Otherwise, grab a jacket and get to it!
