If it’s woody, put the pruners down
The weather people on TV are telling us it’s fall. However, that does not mean you should be quick to prune. Being heavy handed with pruning woodies in your garden this time of year could lead to tender new growth. That new growth may be susceptible to frost damage later in the season.
Has anyone ever made this mistake? I sure have, I just get so excited to be back in the garden as temps. start to cool down.
