Morning. Sunny with more forecast for the day  .  I had thought we'd be going on a 'trip' today but son just wants to go to the local park minibeasting .

Must give some priority to front garden and tidying up today - still got weeds to clear from the drive, blossom to sweep up, pots to place in just the right location, tools to put away, oh and buckets and bags full of garden stuff to take to the tip

How small can I keep a pittosporum Tom Thumb? I have one about the size of a large beach ball, and ideally don't want it to get much bigger. I know they generally do grow quite large but wondered if I keep it in check by regular pruning will it sulk or be ok?
