    When.......it is actively growing.

    how often.......the way I do it is pinch, let the plant respond with now growth of at least 3 leaves and pinch again. But I am looking for more stems as more stems is more wood to sell later. I want the plants bushy. Mostly just pinch when you want growth where and how you want it.

    Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

    Some folks in the northern zones pinch to aid in the development and ripening of fruit.

    Last year was my first year pinching and I had fruit 3-4 weeks earlier on my Hardy Chicago.
