Wanting to re-shape a big "ugly" pittosporum (?) - How??
Hi, ok so quick details - it's middle March and I'm in LA Area; weather is already in the 80s, (if this matters). I have a bunch of 'too big to be cute in this style' ball shaped pittosporum shrub trees, (not sure whether they are in fact pitt.s or whether they are considered trees or shrubs, but I've seen some around the neighbourhood since that are shaped in a more japanese, sorta bonsai style, (please forgive my newbie-ness) and would like to do the same. Wondering the appropriate s way to tackle this if possible. Basically, I want to take the weight out of the bottoms and get these 'trees' to float and grow other things under them. I want them to look more like trees and less like balled shrubs. Ideas, thoughts??
