How to trim NW native berries to be tall
Hi all, I'd like some advice on trimming up NW native berries to be really tall. I would like to trim them such that they provide some shade for other understory plants, like ferns and false lily of the valley. Plus, I just love plants that are trimmed up high like small trees.
The types of plants I'm talking about: salmonberry, thimbleberry, elderberry, huckleberry, serviceberry...
Is it as simple as cutting out the lower branches?
Thanks for any advice.. I'm a newbie to the garden scene.
