Someone pruned back half of a chaste bush before I moved into the house. This happened before March. Now only half the bush is 4 feet tall. The other half is ground level.
It’s the end of April. What should I do? Cut the rest down or leave it?

The best time to prune a chaste tree is in winter, and they can be cut down to the ground. It's probably best to wait until then, then cut it all back to the ground. That way it will grow back evenly.
