Mine has really shot up and the top of it is now disappearing into an ornamental cherry tree. Apart from lopping off branches of the cherry tree, how should I prune the Fatsia. It looks really healthy and the leaves glossy so should hate to lose it by doing the wrong thing. Many thanks.

Why do you want to prune it ? Or have I missed the point ?

Because it is now so tall I can't really see it because it has grown up into a tree. Probably planted in the wrong place!

Oh I see - stupid woman me !!

Hack it back I say. Obviously very happy where it is so can't see a problem. If you do it now will have the summer to recover and should be absolutely fine.

I'm a ruthless gardener Dottie. Anything in the wrong place or taking over gets hacked, dug up and moved ,or, as a last resort composted !

Bought a sea kale 2 years ago - did not flower so early Spring pulled up most of it. Needless to say this year the envy of all !

That's gardening - totally random !!

About 2 ft. has been lopped off the top so looking much better. Fingers crossed no damage done!

Dottie !!

Only 2ft ! Get a grip and give it another chop otherwise will be right back to the same height by Autumn.
Gosh, that could sound a tad rude reading back but hopefully you take my point - no offence intended !

None taken. Will take your advice. As my late Boss used to say "I've got broad shoulders, I can stand my bottom being kicked".!!
