Don’t Be Afraid to Make the Cut.

A wonderful analogy – happy pruning!


Every fall, in our garden and our yard, some plants require cutting back.  Some are cut back to the ground to protect them from the cold winter that will be approaching soon.

Others are cut back to a smaller size to prepare them for the next spring’s arrival.  The last couple of months of this past year we were extremely busy and I did manage to cut back some plants before the winter coldness hit.

In late winter, additional cutting back will take place of those plants, mainly bushes that will soon start to display new growth.  They must be trimmed in order to maintain their current size and make room for new growth.

    Thank you David, very nice of you! 🙂


  2. Thanks for your tips on this blog. One particular thing I would like to say is that often purchasing electronic devices items over the Internet is not new. In truth, in the past several years alone, the marketplace for online consumer electronics has grown substantially. Today, you will find practically any specific electronic tool and product on the Internet, from cameras and also camcorders to computer spare parts and games consoles.|

    Very nice yard!
    When I lived in Florida, that was my thing.
    My yard. I kept it up beautifully. I got up early everyday to go work in it. It is fullfilling for me.
    Everyone loved my azaleas. They said they were so much better and nice than when the previous owners had it.
    The grass grew so fast I mowed twice and sometimes maybe three times.
    If I ever could get my dream job, this would be it.
    I love growing plants.
    And I see you have a pool also. I used to clean my own pool. Because he wasn’t going to. But it was fun anyway. 🙂
    I trimmed my own palm trees also. And the orange tree, lemon tree and grapefruit tree.
    If you are pruning these for the first time, be sure not to prune too hard because it will not produce fruit at all. Or maybe very little.
    I used to be on a Florida gardening group website. Not many could figure out how to do things that far south. It Is really different. Much different.
    But I loved it.
