Question on Trailers: Pinching buds?
Over a year ago, I discovered trailers. Fascinated, I ordered two right away. These were Rob's Boolaroo and Gallwinku. Then, smitten, I ordered a few more last April.
The first two are blooming, and Boolaroo is growing well (Gallwinku also, but it's tinier), but it seems they grow so slowly. Should I be pinching the buds on them to get the crowns to grow more quickly? I must admit I have kept the flowers because they're so cute, but I would like to get them larger(trailing more widely), sooner if possible. My Amadie Trail trailers are also getting ready to bloom, as are my Cireldas.
I do keep them groomed to allow new crowns to get light. They are being grown under lights, using capillary matting. They are quite healthy, and are currently in three inch azalea pots.
It does seem to me I'd read something that says we do want to pinch the buds, but can't find it and thought I'd ask the experts here.
Thanks for any insight-I'd really appreciate it!
