Pruning tips

  • Time to trim Viburnum tinus

    Viburnum tinus is a versatile evergreen shrub that can be used for hedging or pruned into topiary shapes - spheres or half-standards.

    Pink buds stay on all winter and cream flowers show in spring. After the flowers have finished they can be pruned to retain the shape.

  • Pruning Wisteria

    January or February is an ideal time to winter prune Wisteria. The leaves are off the plant and the framework can be clearly seen.

    The aim is to create a framework that shows off the flowers in May.  On established plants older branches may be taken off if they are too crowded,  dead,  diseased or crossing. You can then cut back all new growth from the main framework to two buds - these become the flower bearing spurs.

    In summer, pruning of long new shoots to five or six leaves encourages bud formation. Young plants are trained to the framework required, tying in shoots as horizontally as possible.

    Wisterias can be trained along walls, pergolas and arches, or trained into standards or a bonsai as pictured.
