I planted weigela the first week of September. It's about 3 feet tall. Should I prune it down to a third for this year? Thanks.

I appreciate you sharing this info but aren't you treating this media as if it's an audio only media? The purpose of YouTube is to SHOW people what you're saying. This is a video media with all the abilities of such. Next time, why not take us (the viewers) to a Weigela bush outside & show us what you're talking about? Instead of just chatting at us from your kitchen, why not show us what trimming only 1/3 looks like, what old & new branches look like, what sort of tools can be used, etc?
The first year wine and roses did ok but this year it is looking pretty sad . It is leafing but not full al all. most of the fullest leaves is at the base of the plant . I dont think I trimmed it back that much but it sure is not leafing well at all. Really scatted leafing in the upper part of the plant.
