Working on a Pygmy cypress

I just watched Ryan’s Pygmy cypress video. I have one I received from Bob Shimon. Ryan was working on his in December. Does anyone know if now is a good time to style them and if so, would you wire first, then cut, or just cut and let it recover before wiring. If so, when is a good time to wire. Also, when is the best time of year to repot. Thank you. Wendy
