Pruning Guavas
« on: June 12, 2020, 03:02:08 AM »
When should I prune my 'Barbie Pink' guava.  It was put in ground about 12 months ago out of a 3 gal pot.

It has grown to about six feet tall with one dominant growth and three or four shorter side growths about 3 to 4 ft tall.

I've been fertilizing it about once a month right now using 10-10-10 granular since it warmed up.  It gets full sun starting around 10 am until 5 or 6 pm.

I'm hoping that a bit of pruning may get it to branch and maybe encourage it to bloom.

TIA

Paul M.

If you can't understand just observe what they are doing.
