Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin'
KenH Posts: 3
I may have broken the rules on pruning. My Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin' is 4 or 5 years old, very strong every season, but this summer has been heavily encroaching on my neighbour, I have been forced to cut back about 10% of the growth in mid July, and intended to aim branches away from the neighbour, but it seems to have reacted badly.The flowers and leaves all appear to be dying. Will it recover ? maybe next year ? or have I murdered it ? Its a great climber and I would like to save it. Thanks for any help
This one is about the same age, I don't think you could murder it, I am constantly chopping bits off. It was cut right back in the Spring, it's covering the shed again. If it grabs me I chop it.
I cut mine back to a bare stem in the spring and it quickly recovered and is in bloom right now!
Thanks for your optimism Lyn and madpenguin, mine is still very sad, which is very unusual, but I will keep the faith and see what becomes of it.
