Flowering cherry pruning help please
I have finally got my own garden after renting for years but am a total newbie. In the new house there is a flowering cherry - Prunus Hanagasa (pink parasol) but it doesn’t have a good shape. It has got a handful of low lateral branches but the main stem is very tall and spindly. I have no idea how old the tree is either but is clearly quite young.
Can it be pruned to a better shape or will I need to live with it? And if so, where should I cut?
From what I have read prunus are prone to silver leaf so would need to do anything just after flowering in good weather and maybe(?) use wound paint.
