Pruning Oleander Shrubs

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??
