Pruning and pinching
In winter, when leafless, so we will better appreciate the branches that will need to be pruned.
It should be done when two new leaves appear, by leaving one and cutting the other. It is advisable to observe where the bud we leave when pinching the leaf is, since it is the mark point for the growth of the new branch.
Spring and fall. It is a tree with vigorous growth, so you have to watch that the wire does not sink into the branches.
