We have an old, spreading snowberry bush in full sun. It seems healthy and has flowers at the end of its branches, but not down the stems. Another, younger bush has flowers in the leaf joints down the stems. Should we cut back the old bush drastically to encourage more flowers? The old bush has suckers, should they be allowed to grow or be cut out? I was under the impression that suckers take energy from the parent plant. This is a bit complicated! I hope someone knows! Ultimately we want more flowers on the old bush.
