I recently closed on a property that has quite a bit of lawn and is pretty overgrown. There are some nice butterfly bushes in the front, but they are too large and overgrown. Everything I read says to trim them in late winter/early spring, and right now it's June. Can I safely trim them back and still get some bloom, or should I wait until next winter to do so?

|You can trim them back but you most likely will be sacrificing the blooms for this year.

|Yep. Wait til next year. Here in NW Missouri we do it on tax day - April 15.
