The Q&A Archives: Pruning Shrubs

Question: When is the best time of year to prune a purpleleaf sand cherry?

Answer: If you don't mind losing some of the bloom, you can prune as soon as buds begin to swell on the stems (indicating the plant is ready to grow). Otherwise, wait until immediately after bloom to prune your plant.
