RE: Well...it's cold!!! What is the best time to prune?


While that might be my first choice, Jim, four bulldogs and a toy fox
terrier won't let me get by with that anyway.  LOL!!!  The temps may
moderate occasionally, but on the average, they will only get worse from
here through February or March.  I might as well get what I can done before
it does get worse.

Thanks for the warm thought, though.
