Hi there, please can you give me advice on pruning this plant - I want it for the back of a border and whilst it has plenty of space at the moment, I would like to know if I can prune it at a later date to keep it shrubby and bushy to avoid it getting too tall once it has established.
Any tips gratefully received
Many thanks

Hi, Karen,
Prunus lusitanica is in pruning group 1 which means it should be lightly pruned after flowering. Do you have it in your 'Plants I Have' list? If so, you will get detailed, monthly care instructions on what to do with it and when.
