After the joy of summer has come and gone, it’s time to look at what you need to do to maintain your plants before the winter. We get much milder winters and earlier springs, but one thing that needs to be checked is the growth of the shrubs and trees in your garden. Unchecked, they could become “leggy” and burn themselves out. So Whilst it may generate a lot of mess that only the trailer can collect for you. So it’s worth it in the end. So before you begin, it might be worth looking at getting some Trailer Parts from autoandtrailer.com to tide you over.

The best plan of attack with the trees and shrubs in your garden is to have a plan. The good idea is to start with a shape you want the trees and shrubs to be in before you start hacking away. The best bet is to look for a symmetrical shape, which will give the plant a good definition.

A decent pair of loppers or pruning shears are an absolute must for any of these jobs. If you don’t have the right equipment with you, it’s going to take a lot longer.

One of the most essential requirements is that you only cut the older bud and spend growth. Make sure that any deadheads are removed, as this will encourage new development for the spring.
