Yes, a little tweaking is fine. I’d wait until next spring to do the big deed of a major rejuvenation–maybe even before bloom, since why wait for the blossoms when the thing’s a mess already? So spring for the big cutback. I just always hate to promote young tender growth late-ish in the season, that won’t be tough and hardened off by frost.
