CAN'T YOU TRIM BACK SAY AZALEA'S AND OTHER SHRUBS OR TREES JUST ABOUT ANY TIME WITHOUT CAUSING TOO MUCH DAMAGE? ALSO WHEN YOU NEED TO PRUNE BACK AN INDOOR PLANT YOU GO ABOUT IT THE SAME WAY RIGHT?

David,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Prune azaleas and other spring bloomers from the end of bloom until about now to allow them time to regrow and set bloom buds in mid to late summer for next year. Other outdoor plants can be pruned on up to about early August to avoid late season flushes of growth that will be more cold tender. Indoor plants can be pruned at any time.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
