When and how do you prune

On plant Crinodendron hookerianum



It isn't usual to prune and we have never pruned ours. The difficulty is that the flower buds form in autumn and sit overwinter to flower in spring. Normally you would only cut back any deadwood after flowering.

However, if it is outgrowing its space you could give it a light trim after flowering. Use the bits as cuttings.
