Jonas, I have a couple of questions about correct season too hard prune illex. What season would be the best to hard cut a bare trunk? I have reduced the apex the past 3 years trying to get lower buds to break. Only to get base suckers and a super dense apex.
I'll try approach grafts early and mid summer this year.
Also is there a correct season to air-layer?
I would like to have lower buds on the trunk prior to the decapatation.
