Can Nine Bark Bushes Be Trimmed In August

Question From: B. Kozak - Charter Township of Clinton, Michigan, United States
Q: I have two types of Nine Bark Bushes ( Golden Nine Bark & Little Devil), is it to late to trim them? I live in South Eastern Michigan.

A: You can trim them now. Take no more than 1/4 of the foliage off and be sure to keep them watered. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
