Thank you for your question. It is still (barely) early spring, but that may not be the proper time to prune, depending upon when they bloom. It can get confusing. You're going to need to do some of your own research on "little lime" and "strawberry" cultivars. They are within varieties of larger groups and here is an Extension article which describes those and when/how to prune them: https://extension.umd.edu//sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_docs/programs/hgic/HGIC_Pubs/HG%20106_Prun...

Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
