HOW DO YOU PRUNE AND TRAIN BITTERSWEET FOR THE BEST RESULTS?
I’m glad to hear you are looking out for your bittersweet! Autumn Revolution Bittersweet can be pruned late winter – early spring. Pinching the tips in the summer will help encourage heavier branching. As needed, cut off weak and dead branches. It flowers and sets fruit on new growth, so keep this in mind when pruning. Hopefully, you planted it near a place where it has room to grow and safely climb. The University of Illinois Extension has a helpful article on growing bittersweet that will help answer other questions. Remember, that American Revolution, you don’t need a male and female plant to get fruit.
