Hi, My Grandmother planted a Chilean lantern tree about 50 plus years ago. It has spread very wide and high. Unfortunately due to last years very cold winter most of it has died. Only now has several branches shown some life. I'm wondering what time of year is it best to cut off the dead branches? Also what is the recommended way of doing it?

Hi Noel,
So sorry to hear about your Crinodendron - they are beautiful plants. Since it flowers from late spring into late summer, it sort of falls into two pruning categories - 8 or 9. The best time to renovate yours is late winter/early spring. Cut right back to live growth, right above a bud.
