The Q&A Archives: Pruning Recommendations

Question: We were wondering if you need to prune the Juniper chinensis Gold Lace and if so, can you offer any pruning advice on this particular foliage?

Answer: Gold Lace Juniper forms a dense and compact shrub and does not need regular pruning. If you decide to prune it back a bit, the best approach is to shorten the branches by cutting back to a place where two stems are attached to the branch. This will help cover up the pruning and will also force new growth behind the cut, making sure your shrubs remain dense and full. Best wishes with your gard1n!
