Best time to prune is during the winter months when the tree is dormant. Not only will it be easiest to see the tree shape at this time, but pruning while the tree is dormant helps prevent the spread of pathogens and bugs. 

Annuals are plants that last for 1 year and then die. Perennials are plants that come back each year. Depending on the Growing Zone, the way some plants are labelled (as either annual or perennial) may vary. This is why we always recommend checking the Hardiness Level on all plants you purchase to ensure your best chance at growing success. For more information on Hardiness Levels and Growing Zones in Alberta click here.

Deciduous trees loose their leaves every fall whereas coniferous trees retain their leaves (or needles) throughout the year. An easy way to remember the difference is that deciduous trees “decide” to drop their leaves whereas coniferous trees do not.
