Cutting back an elderly cheese plant
Hello. Could I have some advice please? I have a cheese plant thats about 30 years old. Theres one main thickish stalk, about an inch in diameter, which stretches from the pot about 8 feet across the wall. Tendrils hang down from it, and its supported with string and screws into the wall. The leaves are mainly close to the pot or at the end of the stalk. Im guessing its not terribly healthy but it is a feature on the wall! Nonetheless I am wanting to redecorate and need to cut the plant way way back. I dont want to kill it because it has been with me all these years. How do I go about saving it but cutting it away back? Please assume that I am not green fingered and need everything explained in laymans terms! Many thanks!
