Simply so, how do you take care of a bush?

Choose shrubs that thrive in your area, plant them properly and give them room to grow. Make sure to water thoroughly while they are becoming established and continue to water when necessary. Prune to shape, encourage blooms, and remove lanky, dead, or crossing stems.

Similarly, can I prune burning bush in summer? To maintain the right shape, you should prune the burning bush again in the middle of summer. Burning bushes are usually grown for their autumn foliage, so you don't need to worry about accidentally removing flower buds when you do a summer pruning.

Thereof, how much does it cost to cut back bushes?

Bushes and shrubs should ideally be pruned every year. However, gardeners should take a three year approach to cutting back overgrown bushes and shrubs before pruning the entire plant annually. During the first year, remove one-third of the biggest and older branches starting at the bottom of the plant.

How long should you water bushes?

Newly planted trees or shrubs require more frequent watering than established trees and shrubs. They should be watered at planting time and at these intervals: 1-2 weeks after planting, water daily. 3-12 weeks after planting, water every 2 to 3 days.
