Our Master Gardener Details Must-Prune Plants In Late Winter
These trees flower in spring before fruiting. To keep them looking their best, prune them in spring, removing branches that are crossed, damaged, or close to the ground.
For healthy spring blooms, cut your rose bushes down to 6 inches tall in February biennially, and with heirloom roses, prune the oldest canes to ground level in late winter.
These plants bloom on new wood, so cut it down to the ground annually in late winter after harvesting its fruit, and it’ll regrow from its roots when the weather warms.
Meyer Lemon Tree
Unlike most citrus trees, these can be grown in cooler climates and should be pruned in late winter to keep their size manageable while still producing fruit.
