How to prune - March


Prune large flowered clematis and start pruning roses, removing any dead, damaged or diseased stems. 

Autumn fruiting raspberries can be cut back to ground level and fruit trees can be pruned, removing dead, damaged and diseased branches. 

It’s a good time to cut back hedges before birds start building their nests. Tidy up creepers taking out old, worn and leggy growth. Trim box edging. Bays, laurels, hollies, conifers and rhododendrons can be trimmed. Cut back buddleias, dogwood and willow to bring on new growth.
