Pruning is one of the key steps in caring for any plant. It will help them grow better and bloom more profusely throughout the summer.

Proper and timely pruning not only stimulates lush flowering, but also makes plants healthier and stronger. Express told us which flowers should be pruned now.

Roses

Shrub roses should be pruned either in late winter or in the first half of spring, as soon as they begin to sprout new shoots.

Remove all dead, damaged, diseased, and weak branches by cutting them at a 45-degree angle.

Then shorten the remaining stems by cutting them by a third or half, 5-7 mm above the bud. Make sure that the upper bud "looks" outward so that the branches do not start growing inside the bush.

Hydrangeas

There are so many different varieties of hydrangeas, but common hydrangeas should always be pruned in the spring, removing all bad branches. However, you should wait until the first buds appear and begin to vegetate.

Panicle and tree hydrangeas can also be pruned at this time.

Remove all damaged and dead branches and cut back all stems so that 2-3 buds remain from the ground.

Buddleia

David's buddleia can be pruned quite heavily in spring, up to a height of 30-60 cm above the ground. This will prevent the plant from growing, so it will bloom profusely in the summer.

If the plant is very tall and dense, first shorten it by half to give yourself easier access to the main stems at the base.

Also note that the reed and spherical buddleia can be pruned only after flowering.
