I have a well established one in my garden, was here when I moved in. I have noticed that on one side there is not as much growth, it is almost hollowed where growth is not occurring. It is now over 6ft high and almost as wide. If I cut down the upward growth will this help? What time of the year is best for pruning? thank you.

Look for branches that would accentuate its contorted form, remove all the water spouts, this is a yearly job, you can do ornamental s any time, as long as you are not sacrificing flowers. They are susceptible to a disease, I had to cut mine down, besides the disease gets to the fruiting varieties.
