Quick Fixes to Make Your Garden Great


Prune

The majority of shrubs and perennials require some pruning to be at their best. Even if you only cut out all of the dead branches (anything that is dried out or doesn’t have new growth) and trim back any wiry branches that stand out beyond the others, the plant will have a better shape and it will thrive because all the sun and water it absorbs will be directed to healthy branches instead of struggling ones.
