Can you tell me why my nine bark shrubs are only blooming on the bottom branches? There are many new branches on the top but no flowers. Thanks

If you must prune, prune right after blooming. Ninebarks bloom in the spring on the prior woods growth, so summer or fall pruning is still the answer. Pruning is done to maintain shape and in some cases you may end up sacrificing blooms for one year if you desire a more compact shrub.
