Help please

Hi folks I am after some advice. I grew my first brug last year and it did very well. However it grew more shrubby than tall. I have taken a couple of long cuttings which rooted well and are now potted up. I want them to grow more "tree" shaped. Do I just remove growth points from the stem or do I need to treat the points where the leafs will sprout with anything to discourage growth and encourage growth at the top.
I hope this makes sense
Kind regards

RE: Help please

Some are just more bushy in form by nature you can root the long cuttings and just remove the side leaves as they grow leaving the top growth to form a Y so it will bloom. There is nothing that I know of to treat it so growth doesn't form.
