When is the best time to trim my shrubs?

For evergreen shrubs like holly and boxwood, trimming can be done almost any time, but keep in mind that pruning in extreme hot weather will likely result in some foliage burn and pruning after September could cause an explosion of new growth that could be damaged by a freeze.  For flowering shrubs like crapemyrtle, forsythia and azaleas, follow this simple rule- any spring flowering shrub should be pruned in early summer and most summer flowering plants should be cut back in late winter or early spring.
