I bought this from Hampton Court Show last year & it flowered very well for months however it is now quite leggy. Should i have pruned it in the Autumn?! Is it ok to prune now? If so how far down? Many thanks

    HI Suzi, I'm not an expert on this particular plant,but I'd give some general advice, which would be to leave it for now, just in case we get any more frost - it's only Feb, after all!

    Once the weather gets a bit warmer, wait until it starts to show signs of growth then prune down to the lowest sprouting buds you can find.

    Next autumn, having seen what it does if left unpruned, you could try pruning it down by maybe a third in height - that's a fairly safe course of action.

    Hope this helps!
