Speaking about Vals,does one just trim the longs leaves to get them
shorter? Or would u have to remove the leaves from the crown level? I
noramally cut off the extra long leaves of my Val Giganteas from the top
but notice some leaves rotting away after some weeks of cutting.
Is this the correct way of pruning Vals?
