|Your plants should not be pruned until they have gone into dormancy. Late winter or early spring is better than the fall months. If you prune now and the weather warms up, your plants will put out new growth which will be tender and susceptible to winter dieback. You'll have to prune again in the spring. So wait until you are sure they are dormant, then go ahead and prune.
