Help! Newbie needs pruning help
Hello Gardeners :)
I could use your assistance. I am a novice gardener and we purchased this PeeGee tree last year. It is a young tree and the blooms on it are so dense that I'm afraid it will snap the trunk. Can you provide me with some suggestions on what I can do now (mid July) while it is just blooming? I read forums that state I could cut what I want and eventually prune to 3-5 hearty canes - but given it has just started to produce these blooms, I want to take caution not to do anything that may compromise the tree. So...
What can I do now to provide some relief to the tree?
When should I prune it fully (to bring it down to only the heartiest canes)?
