Q.

my spirea bush

Zone Southwest Wisconsin | Anonymous added on May 6, 2016 | Answered

I have a bush last year with hardly had any leaves yet a lot of flowers. I thought it was because of the winter. This year it has a few more leaves, not many, and a lot of flowers. Does it need a fertilizer or food? Should I prune it after it's done blooming and see if that helps?
