Q.My Foxtail Plants Have Never Been Trimmed, The Stems Are Now 2 Ft. Long And Fat. I Do Not Want To Cut Them To The Ground.
Would it be OK to only cut half ways down to remove some of the weight and then next summer do a full trim to the ground? I am counting on the stems rising strait up with less weight after I trim half of it. Would it work??
