Pruning Oleander Shrubs

Zone Traralgon, Victoria Australia. 3844 | phill.grigsby added on February 11, 2016 | Answered

Need some advice on the correct method of pruning Oleander shrubs. I have 2 large Oleander shrubs in the backyard but having only recently moved into this house, these plants have been ignored by previous tenants and allowed to grow and grow. One currently stands 5 feet high and some 10 feet in width, the second shrub is about the same height but 8 feet wide approx. How would you recommend they be pruned??

    Here are some links to help you.
    Please familiarize yourself with the toxic nature of Oleander.
    All parts of the plant are poisonous and should not be in the landscape where children or pets live.
    Wear protective gear when handling all parts of the plant.
