Definition of hard pruning

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by talinum:

Hard pruning of shrubs involves cutting all stems 1-2" above the ground. This is done to renovate an overgrown shrub. Not all shrubs respond well to this treatment - it should be used only on vigorous growing shrubs such as forsythia, glossy abelia, and spiraea.
