Answer: oleander cut


Gentile Malu,
oleanders bloom on new branches, those that produce in spring, for this reason pruning is carried out to contain the very vigorous shrub, and to favor the development of new branches; this pruning can be done in autumn, or in late winter. In general it is preferable to lightly prune the plants in autumn, at the end of flowering, to practice a more accurate pruning at the end of winter, also removing any amifications that may have been ruined during the bad season.
