Do you want it to have berries on for the birds to eat over winter? You could prune it now and lose any berries as long as there aren't any nests in it anymore. Or you could prune it towards the end of winter when all the berries have been eaten, but before the birds start nesting again.

Removing the weeds might help. Take them out of those pots, prune the bottom inch of roots off and put new compost in the bottom. Scrape off the top two inches of soil from the top (also removing the weeds) and replace with new compost. Buy a feed for ericaceous plants, add to rain water and water them weekly with this during the growing season (more often with just rain water if the weather is hot). I top my pots off with large gravel.

It's a Pelargonium, doesn't need watering too often. If it was mine I'd cut it back hard at the end of summer, or throw it away. It doesn't look great

Trailing. Campanula - cut it back?

I've just cut mine back, if you don't it will self seed everywhere. I don't know if it will flower again this year

Pot them up first but only into small pots, I used small modules when I got some. Mix grit into your compost, I used john innes no.2

With the hot weather you need to increase the watering of acers in pots
