I have a daphne mezureum that has fallen forward...I would like to prune it right back but 1. Not sure if i should 2. If I should when is the best time to do so??



I would try staking it upright and heeling the soil around the plant. They dont seem to repond to well to hard pruning. it would be better to prune it straight after flowering.

sorry :o)
I had a buddlea that did the same thing 5 yrs ago. I used my daughters skipping rope and a huge wooden stake. it has survived and grows straight now.
