Pruning advice for geographically challenged

From the U.K.’s Telegraph:  It’s a snippity-do-da day

A terrific article on how to do some mid-winter pruning of trees and shrubs. Keep in mind that the writer lives in balmy England; mid-February pruning won’t expose his fingers and shrubs to frostbite. If someone were to try that here right now (I’m back in Ontario, Canada, visiting family and friends), they’d have to dig the plants out of the snowbanks first.
