Prunning Grace Smoke Tree

Posted by alexa19702 5 (My Page) on

I bought a Grace Smoke tree last spring and it was beautiful, this Spring I was very anxious to see it grow again but for my dissapointment just one of the branches out of the entire bush gave me new grows.
I called the nursery I bought it from and they advised me to cut it back.
I am not sure what is the best way to go, I love this bush and I would like it to succeed, is prunning the way to go if so any other suggestions about how to do it? I appreciate any advise.

I asked about this a little while ago and got some good advice. I eventually took it all down to 10 inches or so and it's coming back great, really bushy.
