Crinodendron Stripped Of Leaves.
Somerset, United Kingdom
I planted this plant 3 years ago and has been a perfect specimen until recently.
About 2 or 3 months ago its leaves had caterpillars on and a lot of damage too so i sprayed with an insecticide a few times but not enough, clearly.
It is now almost totally devoid of leaves bar a few new ones at the end of some of the branches and i was wondering if i could cut it right back (losing next years flowers probably) ?
Would cutting into this old wood kill it ?
I'm thinking that even if it does it's not looking much better than dead wood now so there won't be much in it !
Any thoughts ?
