How to prune a HUGE frangipani??
HI there - having read the large numbers of emails about Frangis - I figure someone must know the answer to this - so here goes.....
We have moved into a house recently where there is a frangipani that has been allowed to grow rather large and rangy. It is across a window and about 4 metres or more high - not compact and pretty at all. We'd like to cut it right back to allow sunlight in the house but do not want to do away with it completely. How do we do this?? Assume we wait until the last leaves have dropped (on its way but slow to go naked!) - but more of concern is that the leaves and flowers have all been on the end of the L O N G rangy branches and that there is no density in the tree - so we may be left with nothing but trunk stubs. If this happens - will the leaves etc come away again next summer??
Thankyou in anticipation of your replies!
