Here's How To Prune Your Camellia Plants The Right Way
Camellias aren't inherently reliant on pruning for their blooms, but it can boost their health. It also gives you a chance to shape
the plant according to
your preferences.
The best time to prune camellias is spring. For optimal results, use a sharp tool like pruning shears, hand cutters, or a knife to trim your plants' flowers and branches.
Focus on removing weak, overgrown, or dead branches, cutting them as close to the base as possible. It's also vital to eliminate any diseased or pest-infested sections promptly.
Diseased branches should be removed immediately, regardless of the season, while comprehensive pruning should take place once every few years to avoid stunting plant growth.
