12. Pruning Isn't So Scary After All

Pruning. It can be really, really intimidating.  It intimidated me when I started learning how to do it, and I know for a fact it intimidates a lot of my clients (and friends, and family).

And that’s legit, because there are a lot of bad pruning techniques out there, and not a lot of people who know how to do it properly. So today’s topic is. . .how to properly prune! 

The basis of good pruning is understanding plants. And by that I mean understanding how they grow, when they flower or fruit, and when you need to strike a balance between what you find attractive and what is actually best for the plant.
