Host Richard Hentschel discusses the first of 3 pruning techniques. This week covers rejuvenation pruning. This technique works well on fine textured plants and some others. This is the easiest method since a total removal of the above ground parts! Using hand pruners and small loppers to prune work best usually. Plants will regrow into a brand new fresh looking shrub nearly the same size in a single season.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
