Pruning plants in summer is just as important for some plants as winter pruning.
By pruning in summer, you can reap the rewards of better displays from ornamental plants. You’ll also encourage bigger crops from fruit trees and bushes. Removing new summer growth before it turns woody reduces growth-promoting nitrogen, allowing potassium to build up – and more potassium means more flowers and fruit. You’ll also keep plants, such as shrubs, climbers, and rambling roses, within bounds and maintain an attractive shape.
Many people think of pruning as a winter task, but there are several reasons why pruning in summer has its advantages.
So, get out there with your secateurs and get to grips with summer pruning, it really isn’t rocket science and your garden will look all the better.
