The Q&A Archives: Podocarpus Gracilior-Fern Tree

Question: When and how to prune a 10'x 3' Podocarpus?

Answer: Spring is the best time to prune your fern tree. You can shear it all over like a hedge, or you can selectively prune out specific branches. Don't remove more than one-third of the live growth on your Podocarpus at any one time. Pruning can be an early spring ritual if you want to keep your plant sheared into a formal shape.
