Q.When Is The Best Time To Cut Back Carolina Allspice Plant?

Zone Dacula, GA 30019 | Cox added on October 1, 2022 | Answered

My Carolina all spice plant is huge. This year one side of the plant had disease that my husband treated with Neem oil spray. The leaves etc on that side fell off and plant suffered. Then, my husband decided to cut this dead side. Now I am left with a one-sided burn/tree. It looks terrible! Can this be trimmed all over to a smaller bush? When is the best time to cut/trim?

This can be trimmed, anytime the weather is mild. You may want to be on the lookout for crown gall, though. This disease will not be treatable.
