Hi there

Gemma from Awapuni Nurseries suggested you may be able to assist.

Two years ago we planted a small hedge of Callistemon Beka Beauty bottle brush. The first year saw plenty of growth and flowers and left them to get well established without trimming.

This summer growth has continued, they have become leggy but so far very few flowers. I suspect that I should have pruned off the seed capsules.

My question is am I correct, and just how much do I prune off – and when? Should they get a trimming regularly

Your advice will be much appreciated

Kind regards
Ray**

Hi Ray, Depends a little on what you want out of them, If a little hedge than regular trimming will be required to maintain a nice shape as a hedge, in this case you are not growing them as a flower plant (the flower is a bonus) if you do want the flowers than the only time you can prune them is straight after the flowers have finished.

Thanks the Palmers Team
