Pruning Solanum glasnevin
I have a lovely solanum Glasnevin that is about 3 years old now. Last autumn, I foolishly cut it back hard, as it was pulling on my neighbours fence. That was obviously too harsh and next spring/early summer I thought it had died. However, it suddenly sent up new shoots from the base in mid-late summer. These never flowered, but look healthy. Because its been such a mild winter, these now seem to be growing again and some even have buds on that look almost ready to bloom. I am not sure how best to go about pruning it this spring, as I don't want to cut back too harshly on these new shoots, especially as they seem to have their flowers ready. Having said that, the new growth has been so prolific, I think it does need a tidy up!
