Late winter is a great
time to prune summer-
 owering shrubs, on the
other hand. Because
younger stems tend to
produce more abundant
 owers, pruning should
focus on removing the
oldest canes from the
shrubs to allow better
light penetration and air
circulation throughout
the plant. This will promote vigorous new growth (hopefully) soon adorned with blooms.
