Hi Kylie.

Bottlebrush if not trimmed on a regular basis, can appear to become very straggly. To keep the tree in good shape, it is advisable to prune behind the spent flower after the tree has finished flowering. There are many different varieties of bottle which will flower at different times of the year. Some varieties will flower spring/summer and others will flower in summer/autumn. If your tree has recently flowered, you can prune now. If you are still experiencing periods of frost, it would be wise to wait until these periods of frost are over before doing any pruning.
