It’s time for your lawn and garden with John Chastant. Today the art of pruning. Well it is an art maybe but it’s also the right time and the right plants to prune. See like right now you don’t want to prune azaleas, camellias, gardenias—because they’ll be flowering in a few months. And you’ll be knocking them off and they won’t have any bloom, you don’t play with that. But your trees you can start pruning if you need to. And other shrubs, what I like to do, trees that are deciduous or shrubs, like banana plants like this right here it’s an elephant ear that are going to die for the first frost, I’d go and cut them back. Get them out of the way so I’m not bothered doing it afterwards when they’re slimy and messy. So prune them now, put them in the trash and everything and get ready, in the spring they’ll come up with the new growth. Bananas will do that, these will do that. It just looks a lot neater around the home when you do.
