I know it's just not that time of year to prune or transplant for that matter. But guess what? We're doing both right now. Why? Because we found the time to do it and it needs to get done. I know, we should have done this is the Spring or at least wait to Fall but those are busy seasons for us. We have more down time now so we're getting to work. Yesterday, I transplanted all the hostas (hopefully away from the deer!) and pruned all those prickly rose bushes away from the doors. And I'm so much happier! Should have done this months ago, they were scratching us every time we entered the house. Duh. Prune Laura prune.
