Can you cut back unsightly barberry bushes now or is it better to wait until fall?
Thanks, Mary anne Penzone
I need help with my peach trees. Last fall (every fall) I treat the trunks with a peach-bore killer…I have never used it higher than 2-3′ up.
This spring, my trees looked dead up to the middle of the tree. Obvious attack by some bug. I cut all the dead wood off, sprayed some bug killer recommended for these trees. Will spray again in July and treat the trunk. But the question is: Am I going to lose these trees anyway. They look healthy and are loaded with peaches. They look very healthy but they are dropping many peaches and the trunk and main branches look dry and dead. What has happened?
What now? Please advise…and thanks so much for your site!
Love the info………………..
What about juniper type bushes mine are about 10 ft by 15 ft can you prune them back and when is the best time to do it ?
Can I trim back my Sandcherry bush in the Spring or should I wait until this fall/winter. It is very long and lanky and not full. THanks!
Chista, my take is that if something needs pruning the sooner the better. Waiting only compounds the problem.
I WAS SENT A DOZEN WHITE ROSES FROM A VERY SPECIAL FRIEND. THEY ARE STARTING TO WILT. IS THERE A WAY TO GET SEEDS FROM THEM TO MAKE NEW PLANTS? OR TO PRESERVE THESE. I HATE TO THROW THEM AWAY. THEY HAVE SO MUCH MEANING TO ME. CAN YOU HELP?
Julia, you can try cuttings like this http://www.freeplants.com/homemade-plant-propagation.htm
I have 2 sandcherry bushes/trees I need to trim them back getting quite tall and bushy, when should I do that I live in zone 4?
Rita, the ideal time is after they go dormant for the winter. At that time you can cut them back really hard and they won’t mind at all.
