Angels Trumphets

darren clinton asked 13 years ago

Gerry,I recently wrote to you regarding my Angels trumphets which were pot bound. My now question is, as you mentioned, although pot bound, if cut back and protected from frost, they will last nexst year if planted into the ground.How do I cut them back, i.e. where and how far back? Also, as they are potted, would it be ok to leave potted and in my green house until spring, once prunned? Thanks Darren

Angel’s troumpet or datura if in pots already would be better kept indoors. They do not need to be cut back at all, but only if necessary do so, or better still leave it to spring. If they must be cut, cut them as far back as you like to one cm about a bud or leaf scar. Be very careful with the juice from cut surfaces.
