Time to Prune your Crape Myrtles!
Pruning Crape Myrtle
Summer's gone, fall is slipping away and it's time to prune your crape myrtles. There seems to be a cloak of mystery surrounding the proper pruning techniques. Let me first say, don't be afraid to prune. Crape myrtles are very forgiving.
Secondly do not commit Crape Murder! Generally, an annual thinning and removal of suckers and seed pods are all that's needed. Click below for the details.
