Hi Andrew do you trim the branches back at all, mine spread about 6ft out and was thinking of trimming them back a little ?

DL - I did trim the longest ones a little during the winter, just to reduce the spread a bit, but only by a few inches. Also completely removed the bottom ones so the growth is clear of the soil.
