Hello everyone. I have a Berberis Thunbergii Bagatelle that i am going to work into a cascade style. I took the smaller branches off last week. I left a 1" stub on each branch to redirect the flow up the trunk. Is it the wrong time of year, or has too much been done already to start reducing the length of the main branch, or wait to see if its growing good in the spring, then would that be the time to start pruning the stubs back, and the branches, or do one at a time, with what kind of time in between? Its really hot here now, and am not sure if it should just recover from removing the other branches to get ready for winter, or wait until fall? Thanks for any input.
