This Pieris has not had it easy.
We removed two large shrubs, half dead, to the left of it. The poor thing still bears the scars. It is leggy and leaning. And totally out of proportion to the rest of the bed. Extensive research suggests that pieris can be hard pruned, to encourage bushy growth. There are already a couple of new shoots, which you can just see, at the base of the trunk.
Will it work?
I hope so.
