Forsythia is the first shrub that starts to bloom in spring. It shines in a juicy yellow, is often bushy and grows expansive. To preserve this sight for the following years, a pruning is essential. If you do not do it, it can happen that the plant lumbers and the flowers fail.
I have to admit that for me a pruning is always a kind of ordeal. What can I cut off at a plant and how much? What should necessarily stop, so as not to endanger growth? Since it is different for each plant, I am always happy about helpful videos that show exactly which branches you can cut off and which not. Just as a video you get from NewWonder555 for forsythia pruning. He explained in the above video not only in detail, how and when to do the pruning, but in between, also many helpful tips about the forsythia. A successful video, in which the pruning is a real breeze afterwards.
If you have planted a forsythia hedge, you will not get around the pruning. So that the hedge grows dense and you do not have to give up on a plentiful flowering, you should pay attention to an optimal relationship between existing and new branches. The timing is a little different here too. The forsythia hedge is best cut in July. So the birds can still manage their breeding season undisturbed.
