Pruning woody Rhamnus alaternus Argentovariegata
Just wondered if anyone has tried and succeeded to reclaim a woody and lanky (older) plant of the variegated Rhamnus. I have chopped the plant to just above the lowest leaf growth and have cut out one large branch/sidestem which had reverted. If I dared I would cut it a lot shorter, but am now waiting impatiently to see if it resprouts. I know the plant can be used as hedging but would assume that it is cut closer to the growing tips more regularly in that case. Is there any hope??
