I never got around to pruning my vitex after it bloomed last season. Is it too late to do it now?
Vitex: too late to prune?
I pruned my Vitex in Jan. and it is just now putting out new growth. I cut it often to use it in arrangements and it will come back and bloom again. Therefore, I don't think you will hurt it if you prune it now. Mine gets out of control real fast so I just prune when I think it needs it. Not that that is the right thing to do.
not too late at all....i prune mine all season long...nothing stops it.
Great, thank you! I hate to ruin those blooms, they kind of take the place of the lilacs I loved so much back in CT.
Chop them! You'll be amazed at their recovery. (This from a former denizon of Southbury, Conn...)
