I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas and an equally great New Year’s Eve/Day celebration. I myself have been busy with a series of medical appointments with the Veterans Administration and this is why I have not posted. I was hoping to have my “two front teeth” for Christmas, but alas, I got lost in the system at the VA and they are now trying to make up for lost time. I have however, been able to do a bit of gardening in between doctor appointments and I’ve created a new system for keeping my garden tools clean and sharp – which I will share with you in the next post.
I wanted to offer some information on pruning. As we start to close out the gardening year so that our beds/yards can rest over the next few months in preparation for spring, I thought it would be good to put together a pruning “cheat sheet”.
Pruning can be confusing – when and how, so these tips can be printed out and hung up in a convenient location for quick reference.
This is a .pdf document which you can click to download and it also has illustrations for visual reference.
Although plants have gone dormant or are going dormant, there is still a need to prune for appearances but also to help ensure that we get better, stronger plants in the new growing season.
I hope this little “cheat sheet” helps and I’ll see you back here soon with my DIY Garden Tool Cleaning Station post.
