When is the right time to prune a prunus nigra?
We have a prunus nigra growing in the garden, grown from a sapling (5ft high) a couple of years ago and is now 12 ft high. We want to lop the lowest branches off but don't know when the right time is to do that. Any advice appreciated.
Other info that might be of use: the top 3rd of the tree gets sunlight all day, but the lower parts on get direct sunlight for part of the morning. It is in full leaf at the moment, and has fruited. Where we live rarely gets any real frost (Portsmouth, UK) due to Portsmouth's island nature.
