Sure has been cold this winter. And if your yard is like mine there are plenty of things frozen back. I know how tempting it is to get out there with the pruners and just trim everything way back. But wait!

Give it a couple more weeks to assess the damage. You don’t want to trim back too much. When it does come time to trim, consult a good manual on pruning and proceed with care. Give those plants a big of fertilizer (fish emulsion is good) and some water and jump back.
