Q: Dear Ken, I have an Abelia grandiflora in my garden that was planted by the previous occupants. It is some 10 feet tall and a bit leggy. I would like to reduce its height and spread. I would welcome your advice on pruning please. Rick Porter
A: You could trim the Abelia grandiflora back by about one third at present, but it is better pruned back late April. So my advice would be do a bit now with the remainder in Spring.
