Thanks Joyce Do you recommend cutting back the dead shoots?

For many years I have tried without success  to grow a Tropaeolum up a conifer.  This year I bought a larger plant a n it flowered beautifully.  It now look dead which I am hoping is natural die back.  What do I do now.  Do I prune it to its base and do I mulch ??

No flowers.  Lots of new growth which I don't know what to do about either.

I have had a patio pear tree and plum tree now for 2 years.  Still no fruit. What am I doing wrong?

To prune or not to prune

I have a patio plum tree  and a patio pear tree each are in a pot and I bought them last year.  I had thought I would get fruit this year. They seem to both have gone to growth - no flowers therefore no fruit.  Should I cut them back and if so by how much?

I have a Rhododendron in a pot which flowers beautifully from early June.  This year the leaves are drooping and the flower buds (of which there are many) are just not opening.  It is not lack of water as the pot is watered regularly.  Any advice please?  It is a sorry looking specimen!!

No I didn't prune as it isn't really that big.  How much do you suggest I prune this year?
