pruning vitex and desert willow
I planted 2 vitex and 1 desert willow in the summer. One vitex is 4 ft tall and full, the other and desert willow are about the same height but not full.
I want to shape them up to become small trees with an upright habit. Should prune them this winter or give it a skip this time as they are pretty small? Their main branches are about 1/2-3/4 inches in diameter. Is it better to start when they are this small or give them a chance to grow a little?
