Pyracantha: How best to prune? I don't want this bush to grow any bigger as it will be too large for me to cope with in relation to my disability. I have already given it quite a trim last autumn, but only shortening soft '09 growth. If I cut back some more now, and into the old wood, does this mean that this summer it will bear no flowers, and hence later no berries either? I think this year and every year form now on the pruning will have to go into hard wood.
