This seems like a very friendly and helpful forum for the apprehensive newcomer, so here goes..My son bought me a Carmona Fukien Tea, 16 years old. Didn't want it - he doesn't know that! - but I'll give it my best shot. Been reading all the excellent advice about the need for watering and will try to apply it. My tree is sickle-shaped with the trunk joining the 'blade' about 3" from the lower end. I'd like to shorten this end about 0.5" and keep it like that. As distinct to pinching out new growth can I actually cut the branch?
Thanks in anticipation,
