Hi..I am inexperienced with the care of shrubs and am quite clueless as to when and how to prune the following:
1)Pinkie Indian Hawthorne
2) "Burgundy Blast Loropetalum" (aka Loropetalum Chinensis Rubrum)
3) Holly bushes (not sure specifically what type)

I really enjoy gardening and the plants around my home, so I don't want to injure, stunt the growth, or deplete the blooms/berries produced on any of these. Does anyone have any helpful information?

Many thanks,
Pooh

HI Pooh I am not sure when to prune
Pinkie Indian Hawthorne
"Burgundy Blast Loropetalum" (aka Loropetalum Chinensis Rubrum.
but the heres when on the holly.
Winter and spring are the best times to prune Holly. Lots of people trim their holly around Christmas time and use the cuttings in holiday arrangements.Others don't prune until spring.
that's when holly will start putting on new growth.do not prune in the summer or fall as this might damage the plant due to the heat of summer if you do it in the fall it will be baron for a longer period of time till new growth starts.hope this helps.your friend in gardening.mike57
