When Is The Best Time To Trim Bushes

?

When the bushes are dormant in winter, trimming them will not damage their roots. However, it is important to be careful when cutting close to the trunk of a bush because they can grow back quickly if you cut too close. Trimming should only be done after all leaves have fallen. If you do follow this advice and decide your shrubs look unkempt or out of control, take care in how much time and effort you put into pruning them in spring so that they don’t look like overgrown bushes next year.
