The Best Method For Pruning Your Snowball Viburnum
The showstopping snowball viburnum is a must-have in any garden. To get the most out of its lovely flowers, you should only prune selective branches after it is
done blooming.
Avoid the temptation to lop off entire sections or only cut out the dead pieces. Selectively pruning allows you to create airflow, prevent disease, and produce bigger blooms.
Any pruning should take place right after the blooming season to ensure you don’t accidentally cut off any dormant buds. You can also harvest the blooms for flower arrangements.
Use sharp, well-maintained pruning tools to cut at a 45-degree angle about a ¼ inch above a node. Clean the blade whenever you trim diseased branches to prevent its spread.
