Q.My skimmia is getting a bit “leggy”. Can I prune it to make it bush out more -and how?
It was in garden but we had to put in pot whilst we had our drive and garden redone. It has been in pot for a couple of months. We have planted it back out in the garden, but it has lost its compact bushy appearance. What should I do?
