Most of us think of spring or summer when it comes to pruning. But winter is a great time for pruning many of the plants in your yard.
After winterizing your home, you should know that mid-to-late winter is often a great time for pruning in many regions of the U.S. In fact, for non-Spring blooming plants, the dead of winter is one of the safest times to prune while the plants are dormant.
Pruning during this dormant season benefits many trees and shrubs. It provides them with extra root and energy reserves to support new growth on the remaining branches.
