Sunny February days are perfect for pruning shrubs that flower in summer. If you prune spring-blooming shrubs right now (azaleas, forsythias, lilacs), you'll cut off their buds. You can prune overgrown, summer-blooming deciduous shrubs (plants that lose their leaves in winter). Sharp bypass pruners make this gardening task easy.
