The best time to rejuvenate large, overgrown shrubs is late winter or early spring (March or early April). Heavy pruning in late winter or early spring will reduce or eliminate the flower display for 2 or 3 years. However, rejuvenation pruning will restore the health of the shrubs. A: They’re right. It would be better to plant shrubs and trees Oct. – Dec., to take advantage of warmer soil, but there is little harm in extending the planting season to January.
One bit of advice: No matter when they are planted in fall, evergreen shrubs like holly, juniper and arborvitae need occasional watering in winter. Most lantana varieties are a bit too tender to survive a winter north of Atlanta.
‘New Gold’, in particular, seems to have a death wish every December. On the other hand, Rick Berry, the proprietor of Goodness Grows Nursery in Lexington, introduced ‘Miss Huff’ lantana to the trade because it can usually survive cold winters in Athens.
Hi, Deborah: Thanks for this excellent question. FWIW, what you describe sounds less like pruning and more like tree work necessary for the sake of stumpfelling.club that as it may, most deciduous plants are dormant during winter and perfectly OK to actually prune to get rid of dead wood and encourage new growth in spring.
How dormant the tree is, or even whether it’s dormant at all, would depend on.
I'm researching a similar question.
Also try winter daphne for lovely, fragrant blossoms. Vegetables like English peas, onions, and garlic should do well by springtime if planted now.
