Pruning a large Eugenia tree

Zone South End port Elizabeth | Myrlene added on April 1, 2015 | Answered

I have a very large Eugenia bush on the street verge of my home - Port Elizabeth. Which is the best time to cut it right down again? I have done it once before and within 3 months it looked less like a dead skeleton. It is at least 3 - 4 meters high.

It is really hard to go wrong when it comes to pruning eugenia bushes as they can withstand severe prunings. If you want a tight manicured appearance you would opt for regular pruning throughout the year. For a more loose appearance, you would prune in the spring after it flowers and then again in the fall.
