BUSH TRIMMING…. what does It mean?

Basically, bush trimming is the act of generally cutting back bushes for structure, size, and appearance. Some horticulturist considers trimming as an ” art and science”. The art is seeing the plants as it responds to what it is subjected to, giving it a natural structure. The science is understanding the plant.



The perfect time to trim depends on whether they are flowering or non-flowering plants. Also, trimming time could be dependent on whether they are overgrown or not. For flowering plants, they should be trimmed after they have bloomed. You may consider trimming non-flowering plants in late winter.

It doesn’t matter the itch you have to trim, remember never to trim bushes in the fall. With no doubt, fall is the worst time to get your bushes trimmed. This is because plants are advancing dormancy, preparing for winter. Giving them a cut in time like this promotes growth, which can weaken the plant.

Winter is the best time to get plants trimmed. This is because they are dormant during this season and seeing the leaves gone makes the job even easier. So, plants can derive energy for rapid growth in the spring when trimmed in winter.

Spring is also a great time to get your bushes trimmed. Just as the growth begins in early spring, consider trimming your flowering bushes especially those that bloom on new wood (the ones that flower when growth occurs in the spring). Bushes that flower on old wood (that is, they carry buds from the previous year) should be trimmed after they are done flowering in the spring.



To keep your landscape in its perfect shape, trimming has to be done. Those bushes in your landscape require trimming so that they can look newt and as such maintain their health and strength. The question now is “how can overgrown bushes be trimmed”?

  • Cut y-shaped branches: Cut branches that portrays y-shape on the trunk
  • Thinning out: Use hand pruners to thin out the smaller stem. Ensure you get rid of old growth only; it makes the plant look active.
