The Q&A Archives: Pruning Germander

Question: I have a row of germander and need to know the correct time of year to prune. Also,what is the best fertilizer to use and when to feed?

Answer: If you are using it as a mini hedge you may trim it any time from spring as needed through to late summer. If you are simply wanting to tidy it up a bit, a mid spring trim is fine. This plant (Tuecrium chamaedrys) is not terribly demanding so a spring application of compost and/or complete fertilizer according to the label instructions should be sufficient.
