Pruning a magnolia?

As far as I know you should prune 'em in the dormant winter months. I didn't take off the lowest branch of my six footer this year cos of the mild winter but next year that has had it! Mine has flowered every year since I planted it five years ago, grown from 2' to 6' in that time.

If only someone made an attractive aluminium greenhouse that came with the option of an integrated shed, I am going to be buying a wooden one instead to replace the tatty small aluminium one that came with my house when I bought it!

Please note that I know there are people who genuinely do need and benefit from medication and in no way intended to insult them before I receive the usual angry barage of private messages that accompany pretty much anything I post!
