Tips for Pruning: You probably do a really good job putting away your tools between seasons and oil your blades so

that they do not rust. Be sure to clean pruners between shrubs especially if you have a fungus problem or you will be spreading the disease. Rubbing alcohol does a great job and is inexpensive.

*Also be sure to keep those blades sharp so you don't damage the plant when you make your cuts.
