Pruning evergreen cistus

March 27th, 2011 · No Comments

Pruning cistus plant is difficult because they do not response to being pruned back at all. They will not normally produce many new shoots from from bare or older stems. If you are intending to prune a cistus its best to feed it with a high nitrogen plant food the season before to encourage a number of new shoots which you can cut or prune back to the following year. It is also worth taking semi hardwood stem cutting in June as they will root quite quickly and growing them on with a view to replacing the original plant as it becomes to leggy in your border.
