Weigela Shrubs

Pruning Shrubs

Anonymous added on March 12, 2011 | Answered

I have shrubs across the front of my home. Not sure the name (may be weigela), but the bottom is hearty and low to the ground with shoots of woody stems growing up from the centers. I want them to be tall like the shoots, but they don't appear very healthy. The bottom looks better. I plan on fertilizing them but would like to prune before spring kicks in. Any advice? I live in North Carolina.
