Good pruning is both an art and a science

Pruning is arguably one of the best things you can do for a plant if done correctly. Pruning diverts energy from plant endeavors and wood production; this can stimulate the growth of larger flowers. Young shrubs are pruned lightly to encourage them to grow bushier. As shrubs grow and develop. Older plants may require more extensive trimming and neglected plants may require hard pruning.  Some plants require thinning or selective pruning to create an airier appearance.
