I have a large (I think quite old) bougainvillea in my front yard that I need some advice on.
Currently it’s been trimmed into kind of a hedge shape (See link below for pictures) and I was hoping for more of a natural look and wanted to maximize flowering.
I’ve already trimmed quite a bit lower down (it was really overgrown) but I’m not sure what/how much to do with the top
Any suggestions on pruning - how much? Where? How far down to the main stems can I cut without hurting the plant? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!
