I have posted this on the 'Techniques' page, which I think is the wrong place so sorry folks. Noticed that this Forum dept seemed more appropriate.
I am a novice gardener and need some advice re pruning my Hankey Pankey - planted the year before last. It is about 4' tall and had a few nice blooms last Summer but I think it could probably do better as I am sure I didn't prune it properly last year.
On YouTube someone suggested pruning each stem above the 7th bud from the base, after removing any dead/damaged stems. Is this good advice? There are lots of shoots and one or two buds - I am nervous about cutting these off! Help!
Many thanks for any advice.
