Advice on Pruning Mock Orange
Have a Mock Orange shrub that's about 3ft wide and 10/12 foot high... understand that this is the right time to prune - flowers are just fading - looked online and advice suggests removing about 1/3 of the old growth.... I started to do this but am finding that its pretty much all old growth 10ft of woody stem with a few pairs of leaves at the end...
Have had a reasonable chop at it - being what I thought was quite conservative - but partner says it now looks silly (am in some agreement) and wants me to cut it all down to about 4/5 ft.... Just wondered if anyone had any advice... Am I likley to kill it by doing that? Will it re-sprout from the older growth?
