Why Does Pruning In June Matter So Much?

Pruning is a major part of caring for the overall health of your plants. Here are some of the main reasons why we prune.

  • Pruning prevents disease and infections.
  • Pruning increases nutritional levels in plants. When you cut back limbs or blooms, it allows more sun and rain to get to the roots, which boosts photosynthesis in plants.
  • Pruning allows your grounds maintenance team to make your home look neat and trim.
  • Pruning encourages healthy growth by getting rid of limbs that rub against other limbs. The cuts that come from this rubbing create wounds that allow infections to enter the plant. You’ll also get rid of growth called water sprouts that can suffocate the plant.
  • Pruning creates longevity in your garden by strengthening the health of your bushes, trees, and shrubs.

Now you can see just how important pruning is for the health of your landscape. However, it’s not an easy task that can be done by just anyone.

June Pruning Requires Skill

For example, some plants like the rhododendron can be easily pruned by just simply twisting the old blooms off of the stem. Other plants, like hydrangeas, require different care for different types of blooms. Is the bloom on old growth or new growth? Should you prune it after the first bloom or only during the summer months of May and June? Roses are similarly complex. If you choose the wrong type of pruning, you could damage the whole bush.
