Be careful not to over-prune. Over-pruning can weaken or even kill a plant. It also can decrease the plant's food-making capability, reduce flowering and increase water needs because of new shoot growth. Situations where pruning is appropriate include:
- Plant training
- Plant health maintenance
- To improve the quality of flowers, fruit, foliage and/or stems
- Growth restriction
