When do you prune juniper bushes?
Best to prune outdoor juniper bushes in early spring (March or April in the northeast US) to allow ample time for regrowth before winter sets in. If you prune too close to winter, there's not enough time for the regrowth to occur and the bush could be damaged.

Junipers are very drought tolerant. Once established (after 1 year) water only during times of drought.
Answer . As most evergreen shrubs, it is better to prune them in early spring just before new growth begins.
If you trim the lower branches off at the trunk it will become a very large tree, leave the lower limbs and it becomes a bush looking plant.. the best time to cut the branche…s is when it's the coldest in your area..

Regarding when to prune, one rule's the timing of any blooms. If the bush blooms early, before spring growth, then the pruning's immediately after the bloom ends. Examples are… alternate-leaf butterfly bush, azalea, beautybush, pyracantha, and weigela. Otherwise, the pruning's during the dormant season before spring growth. Examples are butterflybush, camellia, gardenia, glossy abelia, and nandina. The other rule's the immediate emergency pruning of any damaged, dangerous, dead, diseased or dying plant parts.. Regarding how to prune, one way's to make an inward-sloping cut about 1/4" above a healthy, outward-facing bud. That's ka heading back. Another, less chancey, and more common way's to cut back to a side branch or main trunk. That's ka thinning. Yet another way's to cut the bush back to within 6-12" of the ground. That's ka renewal pruning. It can be done in one fell sweep. Or it can be spaced over three years, with 1/3 of the oldest stems removed yearly. It's not pruning that all plants can handle. Evergreens don't respond well. Broadleaves such as azalea, butterfly bush, camellia, glossy abelia, and nandina do.
