Gardening in Gwinnett: Proper pruning needed to keep plants healthy

One of the most important cultural practices for maintaining woody ornamental plants is pruning. Pruning is an art in making the pruning cuts properly, and a science in knowing the proper methods and time to prune for maximum benefits. Pruning can help train or direct plant growth to a particular space, like a formerly pruned hedge. Pruning can also control the shape and size of a plant like a hedge pruned to a particular height. Unfortunately, many people do not have a full understanding of pruning.
