Hello, thank you for using the “Ask an Expert” answering system!

Dry and dead wood on your Bougainvillea bush can be pruned at any time, but the best time would be early spring (March or April), before the new growth appears.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can assist you with anything else!
