Is it safe to prune Strawberry Sundae now? It's taller than I'd like it to be.

Mid June isn't the best time to prune.

It would be best if you pruned them back in early spring. Waiting until now, you will may have fewer Strawberry Sundae flowers this year. To have the most flowers each year, they really should be allowed to reach their full mature height of 4-5’. I go through that same struggle in my garden with how large a plant wants to be vs. how much room I have for it to grow!

Thanks for writing!
