To trim or not to trim, that is my question...

[wayey] I have a beautiful flowering plum tree [Love] about three yrs old, maybe 14' tall. Can someone tell me [gabby] how and when I should be pruning it back? It looks a bit leggy on top and I am not sure if the Japanese [devil] beetle swarms damaged [Eek!] the top or its just natural growth in need of a trim. I have a similar request [thinker] concerning my forsythia bushes. They are getting very tall and I want them to get bushier.

Looking forward to the advice,

BFVISION

HI [wayey] Both the plum tree and your forsythia bushes can be trimed after they bloom out when all flowers are gone.this will make the plants busher and thicker with new growth.the plum tree grows slower but cutting it back will make it grow fuller and healty.hope this helps.your friend in gardening.mike57 [wayey] [flower] [flower]
