Re: Forsythia/Cats and Beans

You're correct, prune them after they bloom, or you'll be waiting a year or
so to see the blooms.  I'd just remove about a third of the oldest stalks
this year, a third next year, and the last the following year.  This is one
time that cutting off the dog's tail an inch at a time is a good thing.
