Trimming Azalea Bushes

skarz added on May 6, 2012 | Answered

I have several HUGE azalea bushes that are out of control and want to cut them back to a more managable size. But, I don't want to kill them by cutting back too much. These bushes are 6 to 7 feet tall and I would like them half that size. Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks! :)

Overgrown shrubs can be cut back by a third. Any pruning should be done prior to July in order to have blooms next season. Here is an article that you may find helpful:
