Pruning Shrubs is Topic of New Extension Fact Sheet

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Shrubs may need light pruning this fall to improve their attractiveness and manage their size.

A new publication from K-State Research and Extension titled “Pruning Shrubs” is now available. The fact sheet covers when and how much to prune and covers several pruning methods, including light pruning, shearing, heading back, thinning and renewal pruning.

The publication is available at local county extension offices and online.

Supported by county, state, federal and private funds, the program has county Extension offices, experiment fields, area Extension offices and regional research centers statewide.
