Plants Grow Here – Horticulture, Landscape Gardening & Ecology


Come along with horticulturist Daniel Fuller as we enter a hidden world of horticultural, ecological and landscape gardening knowledge with featured experts, industry professionals and enthusiasts. We inform and inspire you with weekly episodes to help you become an unstoppable plant whisperer.

Have you ever wondered how to prune a plant that seems “too far gone”? Maybe you wanted to make a hedge smaller, but all the foliage was on the outside and only woody stems can be found in the middle of the shrub, where you want to prune to. Or maybe you’ve got a caney plant with multiple leaders coming from a common base, and you’re wondering how to cut it down a few sizes without turning it into a dome shape with the petrol hedger.

In this episode, Texas garden expert Charles King Sadler comes on the show to teach us how to prune for restoration, revenuation or renewal, and what the difference is between those three terms.
