Yes Rose, you can cut it back as hard as you like.  In future years look to pruning shoots that come away from the wall and to shorten shoots to keep it relatively compact.

I have a choisia, probably about 10/11 years old as it was here when I moved in.  It is under a laburnham tree and a very large bay tree bush (poor thing)  Hardly flowers but I dont mind as just want it to infill that bit of gardebn.  It is a bit leggy so should I prune half of it hard in a week or so and they do same again next year to make it look more healthy?  I live in West Dorset.

this will be my firs notice after signing into gardeners world, so here goes...
I have a 4 /5 shrubs and 3/4 saplings I've transplanted around my garden but my plant identity skills have faded.
apart from asking an amateur botanist to make a visit I can't seem to care prune or even know if I've sited them correctly. Any suggestions welcome

Hi Graham, welcome

I'd start  a new thread and post photos for ID.

Then someone will know what to do with what you've got
