Hi Shannon,

Make each cut at a 45° angle to encourage healthy new growth. Remove any dead or decayed stems first, cutting them off just above the damaged section or cutting them completely to the ground. Next, consider the desired height and shape of your Cabbage tree, and then prune accordingly.

A good rule of thumb is to never prune off more than a third of any plant at a time to avoid shocking or harming the plant.

Happy pruning!
@DiabhalMasc thank you! 😊
