The Q&A Archives: Low evergreen junipers

Question: So glad to start to think about gardening in 2007!
I have several of those evergreen and very low Junipers.
They are getting too wide for their area. When can I safely trim them back and how much at a time?
I would really appreciate your help! Dorian Gesink

Answer: Prune evergreens in late winter/early spring just before new growth starts. Never prune more than one-quarter of a plant in any growing season or too much photosynthesizing capability is lost.
