I'm training mine against a fence, and wonder about the best time to prune, as I've pruned before and lost the catkins.

Hi, Ruth,
Your Garrya is in pruning group 8 - these are evergreen shrubs that flower between winter and early summer on previous or current year's growth. Pruning should be kept to a minimum and done right after flowering. If pruned in spring, you will be cutting flower buds and consequently, have reduced flowering. Have you added this to your 'Plants I Have' list. If so, you will get detailed instructions on best maintenance practices for this plant.

Hi Cathy,
Thank you for your help. I added this earlier today, so should get instructions, as you say. I think I must have left it too long after flowering last time.
