It only needs to be said once, but you have to remember to tell it to yourself every time until it is second nature.

If you are using hand pruners, always go in closed.

Always go in closed.

That’s what you say every time you reach into that shrub towards a branch that’s in there deep. Because if you don’t, your pruner will get caught, and you will cut your plant.

If it’s closed, you just snake your way in to the target unhindered. Sidle right up to cut it at its base, then open and cover the job. Get out.

Open is bad news.

Always go in closed.
