If you have yellow berries and you think they should be orange,  check you've got the right ones before you plant them.

As to arrangement of colours. What would you prefer to see? blocks of colour or a mix?

Hard to tell without seeing them whether they need a prune but if they've got one long stem I would cut it back. If they're already branched just cut back any very long stems

I'd cut the tall ones off when they stop pleasing you

That's happening to a lot of things Fleurisa. I hope most of it will settle but fear for some

Hi Arthur

That doesn't sound very healthy.  Have you a photo so we can see what it looks like?

That's true pd, it's a poor specimen compared to most of the rest. Fantastic colour though when it doesn't die back at the tips

Dave Morgan wrote (see)

If you want to create the ball, the supporting stem must first be at the height you require centre of the ball to be.

It's only at that point can you start to shape and start the thickening process.

 

 

I'd do that for a cone or something upright but I'd want the trunk to be divided before it got to the top of a ball

Duncan, everyone else has shortened it to Nut 

It seems appropriate
