Planning – make sure that you are aware of when the flowering seasons are for each of your trees and shrubs and that you have checked the best time of year to cut them back. There are certain trees that need to be cut back after they have flowered. You also need to make sure that you cut them back in the right way.

Rubbish – pruning creates lots of rubbish and having a trailer and some spare Trailer Parts like the ones from is a good idea. This way you can fill the trailer with all of the offcuts from your trees and hedges, ready to take them to your local recycling centre.

Nutrients – after you have pruned back your tree or hedges it is a good idea to add some extra nutrients to the soil. This could be in the form of adding mulch to the soil or by adding some plant feed to the water.
