    The most natural-looking way is to take out about a third of the branches back to the base every year - they will produce new low shoots, and over three years you'll get a bushier and shorter plant.

  • Thank you very much will do.

    Forgot to mention, after flowering up to now is a good time to prune.

  • Once the rain stops i,ll be out there thanks.
