my wife has grown this mamosaand it is really tall shopuld she ponch it?



You can selectively prune out branches but like all shrubby members of the pea family, don't do all the stems as they often won't sprout back from bare heavy wood/branches.

Incidentally, do you know which exact species of Mimosa (Acacia) you have?

I really wanted to stop it growing any taller and thought it would be best to pinch out the top.Could this be the answer?

Yes, just keep pinching the top out.
