Pruning Concepts and Terms

Episode Summary

We cover commonly used concepts and terms for pruning shrubs, vines and other plants, with Proven Winners.

Episode Notes

When it comes to pruning, advanced gardeners most likely have a good understanding of the basic mechanics; the how to cut, when and where to cut, and so on. But there are a lot of terms used both from home gardeners and the pros, which are also important to understand what they mean before you begin pruning, and how it can effect the way your shrub, vine or plant will respond.

Joining us for this #plantchat episode, we welcome back Stacey Hirvela, of Proven Winners to help make sense of these concepts and how to apply them in your garden and landscape. Need some pruning basics? Check out Corona's free Principles of Pruning e-guide.
