Real World Gardener Pruning Evergreen vs Deciduous part 3 in Design Elements
Deciduous and evergreen plants have different pruning needs.
Have you ever had a shrub, say philadelphus that you thought wasn’t performing-no flowers for several years, so you transplanted it or pulled it out?
Perhaps you weren’t timing it right?
I'm talking with Jason Cornish from www.urbanmeadows.com.au
Let’s find out.
Marianne's Tips on Pruning
Time of pruning
Examples of plants
Flower on current season’s growth
Old wood thing. New growth shortened.
Roses, abelia, buddleia. Hibiscus rosa-sinensis
Flowers on previous season’s growth
Immediately after flowering
Spiraea, Rondeletia,Prunus glandulosa, Acacia, Callistemon, Grevillea
Flowering on older wood and spurs
Maintain tidy shape
Prunus cerasifera & other prunus species
For showy fruits
Cut away most of leaders
After fruiting if needed
Cotoneaster, pyracantha, Berberis spp.
For showy foliage
Prune 50% of growth’ feed and water
Winter to spring
Abutilon, Aucuba japonica-gold dust plant. Buxus. Hebe, Euonymus.
Non flowering evergreen
Do not prune back beyond green foliage into older wood
If you don’t know what shrub or tree that you’ve got, the best advice is to wait until it flowers or sets fruit, and then prune after that.
