Bring back your pruning overgrown lilacs, forsythia, mock orange, pieris and other spring flowering shrubs while maintaining their natural beauty and springtime floral display.
Prune spring-flowering shrubs right after blooming for maximum bloom. These shrubs set their flower buds in the summer, so pruning at other times of the year reduces or eliminates the spring floral display. Significant pruning of these shrubs can also be done at the end of winter. It’s easier to see what needs to be cut and the plants respond well to pruning at this time of year. You will simply eliminate some of the spring flowers.
