We recently moved into a new home that has many beautiful shrubs around it. My "green thumb" is a VERY light green, but even I can tell that they need pruning.:lol: They are older shrubs, and have been here a while.

My problem is...I think I may have missed my "pruning window." Please let me know if you think I would be fine to prune now, or if I should hold off until next year.

The shrubs I have are: Acubas, Hollys, and Nandinas. I also have some that look like crepe-myrtles, but they aren't. They have just started to sprout green leaves and dark red/brown flowers. I am not sure what they are. I also have several Camellias (sp?) that are now dropping their flowers.

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
