Pruning Largestroemia and Hibiscus to get the most flower!

Some trees that flower on new season’s growth, including Hibiscus and Lagerstroemia.  For these trees it is best to hard prune every winter, this promotes a strong response the following spring and summer, with enhanced shoot growth and inevitably more flower. Not only is the tree kept vibrant and healthy, you get a far longer flowering display!

If you applied the same strategy to apple tree you would achieve the opposite effect as a winter prune takes away the flowering bud for the next spring so beware. Always feel free to contact us for advice if unsure!
