Should it be cut/pruned to lower down where there are no leaves? Any advice welcome.

Flowers will appear on the new growths after two or three years.’ July 9, 2017 at 5:29 pm #49934 linda lilyParticipant Thank you Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
