Hi, I moved house in March of this year and a beginner in gardening. I have lots of over grown shrubs and two large trees, I have five tropical trees, which three I pulled from the root during the summer. they were pretty dead and they are growing again. I have so many different plants, I don't know where to start!! please can you help? am I too late to do some pruning?
after the heavy snow earlier this year, my hebes seem to have turned black, along with other shrubs... but there seems some life in some of the twigs, do I pull them all up and start again or give them all a good prune ?
my hebe got that black colour after the snow,i left it be and fed it in the spring,its looking good now.

Do I cut back fuschias and pot grown magnolias?

Hardy fuchsias are cut back next year down to the ground-around March/April

Magnolias seldom need pruning
