When to Trim Your Tropical Shrubs

Do you have tropical shrubs in your lawn? Whether you moved into the home to find tropical shrubs on the property or you are having us install new shrubs for you, it is important that you care for them properly. This means that you must maintain your shrubs, including trimming and pruning. Here’s what you need to know to keep your Florida tropical shrubs beautiful and healthy.

Trim as Desired

Minor trimmings of your shrubs can actually be done at almost any time. If you start to notice that the shape is changing or there are sprouts here and there out of place, there is nothing wrong with going out and clipping them back to maintain the shape you want. It is best to trim after watering or a good rain, but that isn’t necessary for it to thrive.

Rare Hard Pruning

When most people think of trimming shrubs and plants, they are really thinking about hard pruning. Pruning is different than trimming in that it takes a large toll on the plant. If you feel that pruning is necessary due to excess growth or dead growth, you should wait to prune until the warmer months. Exactly when you should prune depends on the type of shrub you have. It is also very important that you water the bushes well at least an hour before hard pruning.
