Parts of my snowberry look like twigs and look like are they're dead. What can I do? We live in a hot climate and they are watered regularly on drip system. Thank you!!

    You should prune out the dead branches by cutting them at their base (where the dead branch attaches to a larger branch or the main stem). This will benefit the shrub's health and allow it to grow back stronger. The best time to prune is in the late winter or early spring. However, do not remove more than 1/3 of the entire plant at one time.
