Can I prune/trim a daphne?
There is a Daphne Odora(I think) at the front of my 100 year old house. When I moved in last year the front garden was covered with a membrane and pebbles/bits of paving added. I have now moved all this plus a large hedge at the side and am aiming for a cottage style garden. The basic soil is London clay (although I have added top soil). The garden is in sun from early morning 'till early afternoon.
I guess the Daphne is quite old and looking rather straggly and a little bare although it has flowered quite well.
It looks as if it could do with a good /trim/prune but I've been told this is not good for daphne plants.
I have recently fed it . and also fed it late last year.
Any help/advice welcome
