Thanks for your informative blog, Jenni. I have two plants in containers on my deck and have pruned them without hazmat protection. They need to be repotted, so i think they'll be shovel pruned. I wonder what happens when there is a fire that burns the oleanders planted along the freeway? I am reminded of a novel I once read titled "White Oleander ".

Very useful info. I keep a lot of oleander in my garden in maputo, mozambique. Always careful to tell guests to stay away from it it, especially children.  
Pruned it all a few days ago, propagating the woody stems, but forgot to tell my hardener not to burn the leafy material. Put the fite out with water, and we’ll find a way to properly remove and dispose of the leaves. Burning is def a bad idea
