Should we trim our Juniper bush?

Asked April 23, 2014, 1:50 PM EDT

Can I trim a major lower branch now, so the flowers under it can get light? We just purchased the property and the bush is sprawling.

Prune in early spring before new buds appear. Junipers do not grow on "old wood" or on growth that occurs in late summer or fall.
