Pruning My Azaleas

The weather here at my Bedford, New York farm is expected to be pleasant and sunny for the next few days - perfect for doing lots of pruning and grooming in the gardens.

This week, my gardeners have been focusing their attention on the azalea beds just outside my Summer House. Of all the shrubs that flower in spring, azaleas provide some of the most brilliant displays. And now that the flowers have faded for the season, it's a great time to get out the clippers and loppers and do some routine pruning. Trimmed correctly and these plants will continue to produce layers of beautiful bell-shaped blooms.

Enjoy these photos and tips.
