I planted Thryallis this spring and it shot up fast and is doing well for the most part. 75% is full and plush, the remainder is leggy and thin. Can I cut these back now to promote fuller growth or do I need to wait until winter months?

What did you end up doing- out of curiosity? Seems the leggy part is from shaded areas, if that is why the legginess, pruning isn't apt to help, but if it's hidden, you might experiment with a lop or two since it doesn't appear to die until long term cold weather

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
