Bottle Brush Trees
Q.

cutting bottlebrush

Zone Kent UK | Karenconnolly63 added on August 4, 2015 | Answered

If I cut a bottle brush right back to a large single trunk, will it survive? We have a large, but spindly, bottlebrush that we would like to become fuller to look like a bush rather than a small tree but I'm worried if I cut it right back to the trunk that it will not survive.
