Help! I’m not sure if I murdered my crepe myrtles? I pruned them back in early April, and live in Delaware. It is now the beginning of May, and I see no new growth whatsoever... I can’t remember if the buds come in later? I’m just worried that I stunted the growth for this year. Will it bloom? How’s my pruning job—my husband thinks I cut too much off and they might die. Also, should I be watering them regularly if it doesn't rain?
