Because I would be away from home (Delaware) for the entire winter last year, I pruned my crepe mrytle bush in September. This year I have noticed there are no buds on the bush, which by this time it is usually filled with buds. In pruning when I did last year, did I cut off this year's flowers? If so, when is the proper time I can safely prun as I will be away again this winter?
