Thanks, Todd. My elderberry is pretty young. The first year, no flowers, something attacked the leaves and they kinda shriveled up. This year - flowers yeah, and now berries. However, it is top-heavy so I would like to prune it back. What time of year? Fall or late winter/early spring? Thanks.
pelletory - the birds like the berries, so another benefit for us bird lovers.
Jan23 - As I stated in another thread, my elderberry has come back after being cut to the ground. And wherever you prune it will branch out from there. So you can create more of a bush if you prune in the right spots as the year goes on. (I've pruned year round to keep the shape I want and it'll grow where I cut.)
