So that almond trees and the like bloom regularly, you have to cut back these shrubs. That is, cut the shoots after flowering.

shrubbery are own plants that you don't just like that cut back can as you like. Especially not if you want them to develop vigorous flowers. Short-lived shoots form, for example, the Spiraea or the almond tree.

Cap shoots
If you don't cut at all, the flowers will soon fail to appear. Therefore, the shoots on which the flowers were formed should be cut after flowering.

Cut off older shoots close to the ground
In addition, all shoots that are older than three years are cut off near the ground. To do this, of course, you have to know your shrub and perhaps also note the age of the shrubs in your garden planner (which you will hopefully have).

Special features of currant and forsythia
With currant and forsythia, for example, it looks a little different. Here you can only cut back flowering shoots that are older than three years. All others, especially those that grow fresh from the ground, stop.

Thinned out flowered shoots
The flowered shoots can be thinned out. This gives the younger shoots more strength and strengthens their growth. You can find out which shrubs are cut and how in your nursery.
