Pruning gone wrong

The rare texas butt bush
Yes, I wrote a column about pruning gone awry, thanks in part to the great butt bush photo sent by my parents. And yes, I actually did quote a Kenny Rogers song. Yes indeedy. You can read my latest gardening column for Just Out here.

Oh my...that is just SO wrong! I'm always taken aback at the strange ways people prune things - then again, I'm so bad at it, I just avoid pruning altogether!

Yeah, I don't get it. I guess people are trying to go for symmetry, but it always ends up slightly off or way off, which makes the effect all the more jarring and appalling. Better not to prune at all than to end up with a pair of asymmetrical (ass-ymmetrical?) buttocks. That's what I say.
