Late spring flowering shrubs like Deutzia and Philadelphus which have finished their display should now have the branches that have flowered removed to encourage new growth which will ripen and flower next year.
Cut down the flowered heads of the shrubby Euphorbias to promote basal growth and encourage bushier plants.
Olearia phloggopappa ‘Combers Pink’ and ‘Combers Blue’ can now be cut hard back and will break readily from bare stems, the same applies to Olearia x scilloniensis.
Cytisus Hybrids can be lightly pruned to keep the plants bushy and in shape but do not cut back into bare wood where there is no green growth.
Cytisus x Porlock can be pruned quite hard back on to the bare stems – especially if it is being grown as a wall shrub.
