What, When, Why, and How Should You Prune?

Spoken Garden has developed a quick, easy strategy to remember called the “3 Pillars of Pruning ©.”    

Pruning . . .

is a garden maintenance task and one you can perform any time of year, depending on the plant. Keep in mind, not all trees and plants can be pruned during the same season. 

Listen to our quick segment on this “DIY Garden Minute” to learn about the 3 pillars of pruning and how this can help you in your garden.

This episode is for any gardener who would like more information about the basics of pruning (the what, when, why, and how) as well as learn about our 3 Pillars of Pruning.
