When Do You Trim a Jerusalem Cherry Bush?

I have a Jerusalem Cherry bush/tree and it is getting very straggly looking. I don’t want to hurt it, but it needs trimming! The branches are long and spindly.

The dormant season (winter) is the best time for giving it a trim. If this is an indoor plant, the leggy growth is likely an indicator that it is not getting quite enough light. After you give it a trim, try to move it to a location where it will get a little more light.
