If you have formal shrubs or hedges—the kind you shear with a power hedge trimmer rather than pruning branches out by hand—it’s time for their last haircut of 2017.

“Early August is the very latest you should shear shrubs,” says Sharon Yiesla, plant knowledge specialist in the Plant Clinic at The Morton Arboretum.

If you shear them too late, you’ll make them vulnerable to damage from the cold in late autumn or winter.
