What Is Rejuvenation Pruning and Why Should You Do It?

Now that we have made it most of the way through the dark days of winter and our plants are brown and damaged from cold snaps, it's time to plan your spring pruning for rejuvenating your landscape.

1. To improve flower or fruit production
2. To direct the growth and shape of the plant
