Dogwood??

I chose ome year not to prune my dogwoods...."shame" I thought as they were looking so good.  However, they did not produce those red stems to the same extent. So I always prune now. Come mid summer you wont know the difference as they grow fast from hard pruning,

Hiya italophile

i know tomatoes benefit from a certain amount of pot restriction.  Currently I have tomatoes as plugs and now in 9 cm pots and growing fast.  Usually I will pot into next size pot and then into 1 litre pots before planting  into greenhouse soil.  Make sense to you? Also to pot on when flowers are forming?  

 

New here. 😊

prune to keep your bush open.....mildew is another problem.....but this is not an immediate task.  Keep yoyr bush on a "leg" ....I.e. On a single stem from the ground.  You can spray for sawflies but not good for edible crops.  Sawflies are amazingly fast in their destructive habit....overnight it seems the damage is done.

check tomatoes in those small pots and pot on into slightly bigger ones.....not straight into your large pots.  Keep them growing this way

nighttime temps are pretty low currently so a little more patient cosseting yet

Taxus  has the advantage of being durable in most every situation so worth considering.
