Over Grown Pussy Willow

Anonymous added on September 21, 2011 | Answered

I didn't get to prune my pussy willow this summer and now it is about 15 to 20 feet high and a little wild looking. Can we trim it now or do we need to wait until late winter, early spring or until the catkins bloom?

You can trim it now, but in doing so, you risk reducing the number of catkins on the plant next year. If you are ok with this, then you can prune now. Here is more info on pruning your pussy willow: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/pussy-willow/how-prune-pussy-willows.htm
