Pruning short laterals off one side of cane
I have an Abraham Darby that has developed very strong and tall canes over the last two years. The canes bent over nicely halfway and I was able to secure them to a wall. The canes have short laterals up and down them with many blooms and buds. Question:
Should I or can I prune off all the short laterals on the side that is now against the wall? they are being crowded and flattened somewhat. Would it cause die-back of the main cane?
