Ceanothus

thankyou Dave.  One thing, on the ceanothus, lots of the leaves have turned crispy & brown & fallen off. It's only July, so am not sure this should be happening ? That's why I posted a closeup photo as well.....any ideas ? 

Pruning Rhododendron

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 14:15

Wonderful rhododendron, about 5 years old, flowers profusely, lives in Guildford in sheltered small garden in a pot, but getting rather large & needs pruning.  I know nothing about pruning Rhodies, when or how much to prune them & where to cut!  Can anybody please advise me/give me any tips? That would be kind, thankyou

please, I need to know how & when to prune my rhododendron?  Can anyone out there please advise me?   It flowers "profusely" & has done for 5 years now, in its pot, giving us a fantastic & fabulous display of pale pink flowers.  It's now very very big, & needs a prune - I have never pruned it!  No idea how to go about it, and when & by how much?  Would really appreciate some advice & any tips.  thankyou

My "ceanothus"  flowers profusely in May & part June.  Healthy, sturdy, we've had it 3/4 years, grown in a pot (next to a jasmine idea on the one side & hydrangea the other (all in pots) It now looks like this...is there anything I should be doIng to it, like pruning?  or do I just leave it like this & when do I prune it?   Does anyone know if any "special care" is required when pruning?(like where NOT to prune)  

sori don't know which variety it is......thankyou
