|I planted a garden of Heather last year. Does it need any triming or pruning? I can't find any care tips for it.

|Heather will bloom 2-3 times a year if you gently shear them back immediately after flowering. Cut the flowering stems just below the last flower and your heather will develop new growth which will flower in a couple of months. Keeping them trimmed right after each flush of blooms will help your plants remain thick, dense and attractive. Enjoy!
