Ceanothus

Finished flowering.  Now putting on new growth (and trying to get even bigger than it is already).  Good time to give it a hedge trim?

    Mine too, so the same question from me?

  • Immediately after flowering is a good time to prune a Ceoanathus. They seriously dislike like being hard pruned though and may forever be misshapen.

    Cutting back the new growth is fine and trimming back old stems by an absolute max of 20- 30cm should be ok, depending on the variety. When pruning stems, cut back only old wood above new leaf buds; leave fresh stems to mature to enable training to a shape if desired.
