When should the snowball be pruned?

The best way to prune your snowball shrub after flowering is before the shrub has new shoots. Because the flowers will form on these shoots in the next year. This makes pruning easy, even for beginners in gardening. Because if you cut off too many young shoots, your snowball bush will not bloom very profusely for the next year.

The essentials in brief:

  • Do not prune young plants at all
  • later cautious pruning every two to three years
  • use sharp, clean tools


Do not cut off too many new shoots, otherwise your snowball will only bloom sparsely for the next year.
