Conrad Waters emphasizes the importance of timing, technique, and tools to achieve optimal results.

Why Pruning Matters

Pruning offers numerous benefits for your plants and garden. Regular pruning enhances flowering and fruiting, promotes better airflow and sunlight penetration, reduces disease and pest infestation risks, and shapes plants into desirable forms. Waters explains how you can make the most out of these advantages and improve the overall health of your garden.
