Prune my plants
When is it time to prune my oleanders, azaleas, and roses in Houston,Texas? Where on each of the plants do I make a cut?
Harris County Texas
For azaleas and roses, the best time to prune is after they flower. The oleander has a longer bloom period (during the summer), the best time to prune would be either early spring or fall.
Here are some additional resources on pruning.
