I am a novice gardener, any advice would be much appreciated. I have been doing lots of research and would really like an Alemanchier tree in my garden. I wondered if it possible to prune the trees to restrict their growth, possibly to about 3 meters in height. Or should I look for a naturally smaller Alemanchier variety?
East facing, top of a hill clay-loam, cultivated for centuries (7 years by me). Birmingham
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
After 10 years it is only just about 2 metres tall.
Because it as a twiggy sort of tree it is easy just to cut off anything that gets too long or pokes you in the eye.
Never needs a hard prune.
Very well behaved and ideal for a small garden.
