Pruning after flowering

This pruning is done only on flowering shrubs and it is carried out at the end of flowering, just at the moment when the new buds that will give rise to a new flowering have not yet begun to develop. If instead the pruning is done in winter, the flowering will be affected.

Rejuvenation pruning

It’s a type of pruning that is carried out with the intention of improving the conditions of the plants. It is common that it is necessary when it comes to old plants that have not had a follow-up. Then, the dry branches and those that are crossed as well as those that are very weak are eliminated. In this way, the plant receives a renewal that will help it grow stronger and more vigorous.
