Finishing touches of the year | Gardener Joe

Fall, A time to enjoy the bounties of our grow season. Noticed a lot of trees are showing there fall color. Take notes. Is there some color you would like to add in your own yard?
This time of the year I like to finish up on some pruning of trees and shrubs. The key in pruning at this time of the year is to prune before the leaves drop. I like pruning Japanese maples and most fruit trees at this time. Please never top your trees. Consider how the plant grows and prune for its natural growth.
If you have trees that were pruned wrong or needs some rejuvenating only prune a third now and then a third next season and so on.
