Hi My Eriobotrya Japonica (Nispero ?) has become 'leggy'. and (although I'm new to gardening) it seems to me that the branchs are not to strong and thus, for its own good the tree needs pruning. My question is this .. can the tree be hard pruned (ie can it 'take it' withou killing it!) or should it be more gentle... and at what time of the year do I prune it? The garden is located in Ibiza Spain. Thanks for your help.
