yeah thanks, I think I'll give it a try this weekend. I just got to get my facts on trimming straight before I screw up big
It's hard to screw up trimming. If you see a leaf, stem, root or rhizome you don't like... cut it off.
Sometimes if I am not sure how a plant will look or handle a trim I will just clip one stem or a small part of a plant to see how it reacts. I've learned to train a rather large Amazon sword that way.
