ONLY AT MARCUM’S
Light shearing in early spring is acceptable. Touch up again in early summer.
Selectively prune broadleaf evergreens such as hollies and inkberries to keep shape. Best if not sheared.
Keep small for the first few years to increase branch density. Selective pruning is best. If you must shear, it is best in spring and early summer.
Selective pruning is best. Light shearing is acceptable. It is unlikely that new growth will emerge on interior wood.
Prune by removing 2/3 of new spring candle growth. New growth will not emerge on interior wood.
Do not shear. Selective pruning only in early spring before new growth.
Light to moderate shearing in early spring is acceptable. Touch up again in early summer. New growth can emerge on old wood, but complete rejuvenation of mature shrub is not recommended.
