Amelanchier Canadensis queries

I have invested in a group of Amelanchier.  I thought they were pretty and quite tough, but the GW skill level is experienced - why is this? 

They arrived pot bound and dry, which is good, they should romp away when liberated, but they are very top heavy, quite gangly.  It does say on some sites not to prune, but i was wondering if reducing the top would help establishment? Its a windy site. 

Thanks.

  • I had one once, i didn't give it any special treatment and it was perfectly ok - lots of flowers followed by edible berries.

    Hmm ok. Sounds good.  Not sure what they are getting at then.
