I'm interested in how you all prune your mini's. They have leafed out to the top. In fact they always do. This year I'm temped to use the hedge shears on them. It takes forever to do it the right way.
Lol, I've been tempted to do that too! And there are probably some that wouldn't care much. I spend the most time and care on my exhibition minis and then the others I mostly just look for dead wood to take out and shape them a little.
