How to prune Chinese lanterns

Prune young plants to encourage bushiness and flowering. For established plants, remove old twigs and dead wood and roughly prune back by one-third in late winter or early spring, just before plants put on new growth.

If your plant starts to look leggy, give it a hard prune – cut branches back to around 20cm from the main trunks.
