Pruning an Avocado Plant

Pruning an Avocado Plant

After reading another post about avocado plants, specifically how and when to properly prune them, I am in need of suggestions too. My first avocado plant is now almost 7'3 inches tall and living in Michigan in my apartment that has 8' ceilings.


It is still winter here, but "Avogadro" knows spring is coming. There is new growth on all three branches as well as significant growth on the top. How do I prune this guy back or is it too late?

Hardiness Zone: 6a
