Pruning trees and perennials can be very beneficial. It helps shape the plant while promoting future growth. But if done incorrectly, it can lead to more harm than good. Filmed in Columbus, Ohio; Mount Airy, North Carolina; and Seattle, Washington, this episode aims to help viewers understand the truth about pruning. We bring in the experts, such as best-selling garden author Tracy DiSabato-Aust, to demonstrate the science behind the practice and offer real-life examples of how to do it correctly. Through step-by-step instruction on how to promote healthy plants with careful pruning, viewers get to see the benefits of correct pruning as well as the common mistakes made.
