During which periods you can best prune

Pruning of your houseplant or gardenplant depends of course on the type of plant you can find here what the general rules in the field of pruning, if you want to know for sure when you can prune your plant then you should take a look at our Plant Encyclopedia so you know exactly when you can prune your houseplant or gardenplant.

Pruning houseplants

For houseplants it is best to start pruning in spring, summer and autumn. In the winter months it is not advisable to prune your houseplant, because this can stand in the way of growth, because the plant is then in its resting period.

Pruning garden plants

It is best to prune garden plants in early spring, so that the plant can recover nicely during the summer months. Some garden plants, such as trees, can be pruned almost all year round, but we do recommend that you give your garden plant a little more rest during the winter months.

Good tools are half the battle!

The proverb says it all: 'Good tools are half the work'!
That is why it is very important to have the right tools and not bad or blunt pruning shears, because this could cause a lot of damage to the plant. We therefore also offer the best pruning shears, which are also used by florists, so you can be sure that you will not damage the plant during pruning!

Pruning palms, cycases or ferns

Palms are beautiful Mediterranean plants, which by pruning literally activate the spoken word: 'pruning makes growth grow'. Because, when you start pruning the palms, they no longer unnecessarily bring energy to these leaves, and focus all their attention on making new leaves.
Make sure you stay away from the core, because as soon as you cut it you will damage the beautiful fresh new leaves.
It is best to prune the palms, Cyclades and Ferns in the spring and summer months. However, we do advise you not to prune in the winter months, as this can cause damage to your plant.

Advantages of pruning your plant

Pruning your houseplant or gardenplant usually has several advantages. We have listed the reasons and advantages for you.

The other parts of the plant get more energy

When branch(s) or leaf(s) are pruned, they no longer require energy, and the energy of light and nutrients can flow through to the rest of the plant. This allows the plant to remain healthier and stronger.

The Garden Plant remains compact, or in your desired shape

Sometimes it is desirable to place a certain shape in a plant, or to prevent the plant from becoming too big. Then there is nothing else to prune the plant.

New shoots can grow considerably better

Most plants, especially palms, are constantly producing new shoots. These fresh shoots often become the most beautiful part of the plant as they grow into adulthood. The pruning of old parts ensures that these shoots can grow well.

Some plants get branching as a result.

Sometimes pruning is used to have a plant branch out extra. This can increase the ornamental value, or the fruit yield.

The plant grows faster

By pruning old or diseased parts, a plant that can become even bigger can often grow faster. This is especially used by growers etc. who benefit from rapid growth.
