How do you prune a Hypericum Hidcote?
Hypericum Hidcote Pruning Time
If the plant is young, just prune it lightly. As it matures, trim plants to 1/3 of their size, cutting above their lowest nodes. The best hypericum hidcote pruning time is the late winter to the early spring; you will want to do it before any new growth appears.
How do you propagate St John’s wort?
Once you have your cutting, remove lower leaves and dip the bottom in a rooting hormone. Plant your cuttings in a pot with compost and water them, then cover with a plastic bag and place them somewhere warm. Keep the soil moist, and after around 10 weeks, your cuttings should be rooted and ready to pot individually.
When should I prune lavender?
“Ideally, you should prune your lavender twice in a growing season — once in early spring and once in late summer, after it's done blooming,” she says. In early spring, Fedele suggests waiting until you see new growth before you prune. Then in late summer, after the plants have stopped blooming, prune again.
