It’s time, it’s time to prune your warm season grasses! During the last week of my travels, I’ve noticed some grasses that have been freshly pruned in preparation for spring growth. Now is the correct time for warm season grasses to be pruned as we start the beginning of the warm season, spring through fall. Pruning grasses at the right time ensures their future success. Grasses pruned at the wrong time will surely suffer, begin to decline and ultimately give grasses a bad name. Grasses are perhaps one of the easiest plant groups to care for requiring maintenance only one time each year.
