Are there any cautions I should be careful with when pruning my Annual mallow?

Annual mallow
Malva trimestris
Learn More
Annual mallow leaves are delicate, so take care not to score or bruise them. Unless the leaves are withered or heavily discolored, do not prune the leaves from the lowermost branches unless they’re damaged. They typically grow the largest, so they supply the plant with critical energy to keep it growing right. Please prevent the wounds from water after pruning until they are fully recovered. Remember always sterilize the tools before pruning. When the pruning is finished, please throw all the waste leaves and stems into the trashbins to avoid diseases and bugs.

Description
Annual mallow (Malva trimestris) is an annual flower with roots in the Mediterranean region. It can now also be found around North America. Annual mallow prefers drained soils and full sunlight. The species epithet to its scientific name, "trimestris," refers to its habit of blooming for three months at a time. Those blooms attract birds, bees, and butterflies.

Whether in pots, garden beds, or flower borders, this plant seems to grow anywhere, and this ability makes the annual mallow very easy to grow. Standing at 15 to 61 cm tall, with pink, red, and whitish veined flowers, this is a gorgeous plant to add to a garden.
