The PowerGear®2 Pruner is also perfect for cleaning up small bushes, preparing them for another growing season.
When pruning, you'll want to cut just above existing branches, at a 45-degree angle. Keep in mind, each cut will typically stimulate two new growths just below the cut; this is why pruning in late winter to early spring is perfect for kick starting your plant's growth.
You can also use PowerGear®2 pruners to control your favorite fall time flowering plants. Because these are fall flowering plants, we don't want them flowering sooner, especially in the harsh, summer months. Simply remove any buds just above the highest leaves. This is a perfect opportunity to control the size and shape.
Spring is also the perfect time to tend to any indoor plants you may have, or any potted plants you have that you've moved inside for the winter. Pruning is necessary to keep a container plant in control—you don't want them growing too large after all. A versatile pruner like the PowerGear®2 pruner is wonderful for tidying up sprawling thyme plants, winter-stressed herbs, and any remaining small winter-time fruit and vegetable plants you like to grow in containers.
