    Do you prune plants in the spring? If so is there some that you don't want to prune? Appreciate any input thanks.

    Don't prune Azeals, Rohdodenrens, Lilaic, Hydrangeas any thing that blooms spring to early summer you need to not prune or prune with caution.

    You can prune anytime just beaware that you may not get any blooms or reduce the out put of blooms.

    We prune woody shurbry right now while we do clean ups.

    Don't prune any plants that bloom on "old" wood, if you want a good flower display, until immediately after they have flowered.

    Many broad leaf evergreens recover very well from spring pruning, especially if you need to head back or shape, but you may lose flowers, which may result in less of a fruit display later on.
