Cherry blos­som

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

It is a mis­take to win­ter-prune cherry blos­som and flow­er­ing plum trees which bloom in spring or early sum­mer. This waste­fully cuts out the most im­por­tant flow­er­ing wood. The only prun­ing needed is to re­move dead, dis­eased or badly-placed branches, a job that can be car­ried out any­time. Most spring and sum­mer-flow­er­ing plants are pruned im­me­di­ately af­ter flow­er­ing, while in ac­tive growth.
