Asa general rule, the Spring flowering plants will blossom on previous year's wood,,, so I agree that waiting until 'after' blooms are gone is best, and should be trimmed shortly thereafter...

About 25 years ago I settled on mid-June trimming/shearing and /or pruning on some things,,, and a dormant season 'pruning' on the rest... can't think of any exceptions off hand but there may be some...

Before that there was a bit of trial and error and things like roses were held out to a different standard until I realized that dormant pruning was just fine for them also...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
