The lower buds are protected because they are buried in snow.



May 22, 1. Prune forsythia plants right after they finish blooming in the spring. Wait for your yellow flowers to fade and for the leaves to grow.





At this point, the plant starts to develop next year's buds, and the plant carries the buds through the fall and winter season. This is the best time to prune your forsythia%. Prune the whole stem. If your forsythia bush is totally out of shape and if think that pruning wouldn’t work for you to enhance its appearance, trim it off from the bottom.

All you have to do is, use loppers to cut the whole bush back to within 4 to 6-inches of the ground. Prune these spring flowering shrubs soon after they have bloomed. Top prune the plant to improve the shape and reduce its size, but be careful not to remove more than 30% of the top growth. Some summer pruning can also be done on particularly vigorous plants, but not after mid-July.



Dead, bent, and split stems also change the look of your shrub.



As the plant matures, some “renewal pruning” should be done. Apr 16, By cutting back so severely in the Fall, aren’t you sacrificing bloom in the Spring on a mature bush, or do you prune so severely only on a young bush to make it grow fuller?

I thought that pruning is done on a flowering mature forsythia after the bloom is finished, so that new buds for the following Spring will be set. Thanks.
