Many New Zealand gardens include lovely shrubs and trees which, thanks to the almost tropical climate, can easily outgrow their location. Pruning for size control is a common requirement. However, pruning is perhaps even more useful to increase yield of flowers and fruit.
Correct pruning will encourage healthy new growth where rejuvenation is needed, and is useful to help manage disease and insect infestations. It's probably fair to say that very few shrubs do better in the home or commercial garden than those that are correctly and regularly pruned. In fact, many fruit trees yield less and less fruit of poorer and poorer quality, if the correct pruning program is not maintained.
A number of V.I.P. Home Services Lawn & Garden Franchisees are trained to carry out pruning for year round maintenance of your roses, shrubs & trees.
