I recently borrowed a couple of pruning books from the library to give me more of an idea on how to prune my plants, especially the bay laurel tree I’ve had for a couple years now. So I read up on it the night before and the first I did when I got up was head to my back patio with my pruning shears in hand and started cutting. I think I might have gone pruning happy! Before I knew it, the tree looked like a storm passed and all left were a few twigs and some leaves. Ooops! I’m sure it’ll be fine. The book mentions that the only way to learn is to just do it and cut! I can’t wait until more leaves start developing. Well, at least I have tons of dried bay leaves for cooking. Happy Pruning!
Any pruning advice or anecdotes you can give on pruning for the faint at heart?
