Q. inside Euonymus plant

Can I keep my 14″ tall Euonymus plant in its pot inside (where it’s been since August) by a southwest window, now November? How should I care for it? So far I’ve just watered it weekly and it sheds a lot, but it is green and healthy looking to me.

Q. Plant identification and pruning

I have these two plants in our front garden. I have no idea what they are and they have become unruly and unshapely! What are they and when can I prune/rejuvenate them?

Many thanks

The first image is unclear, as it appears the flowers are faded and it is in seed form. Generally most perennials can be trimmed back after flowering.

The 2nd plant is Euonymus.
Annual pruning is recommended, early spring or early summer is best.

Recommendations are for 30 cm apart for hedging or 3 to 4 per meter.
Plant in moist, well draining soil with plenty of organic material.
Plant the shrubs at the same height that they were in their pots.
Use mulch to help with moisture retention.
Water every day for the first 2 to 3 weeks, then back off to every 2 or 3 days.
A balanced fertilizer can be applied. Follow the directions given by the grower and on the packaging of the product.

Distance form wall can vary--use the 'look and see' method.
Keep in mind that the shrub is very rapid growing.

Q. If I cut a Golden Euonymus down low to the ground, will it grow back.

My bushes have grown too large and I would like to cut them down low to the ground,but if I do they will have no leaves left. Will they come back again?

This is a common issue with Golden Euonymus, they can easily outgrow an area if not planned for.
If you have not maintained your shrubs regularly, you can prune back to low and basic framework. Since they bloom on old wood, this will limit any flowering.

Q. Euonymus standard with scab

Last September my old very well established standard euonymus was diagnosed with a bad case of scab. I was advised to spray twice with the advised spray and told to feed in spring and it would recover. It’s now April and it is not recovering. Should give it more time or dig it out and destroy? It the latter , I would like to replace it but concerned the soil may be affected and another such tree may be a bad idea. Please advise.

It's difficult for me to determine the state of your plant and whether it is responding to the treatment or worth saving.
If you do remove the plant make sure you remove all leaves and plant material and dispose of.
I would solarize the area before planting again.
Here are some links with more information.

Q. Euonymus is turning yellow and brown

Last year we treated our euonymus for scale and everything looked fine in the fall. Now, we notice that there are no bugs or mold, but the leaves are still turning yellow, then brown, and dying. What could be the problem? Should we retreat?

Thanks,
Joanne

In early stages it can be nearly impossible to see the Scale insects.

I would prune away any dead or damaged plant material and dispose of.
Treat the plant with Neem Oil. Neem Oil is organic and will work as both an insecticide and fungicide.

Here are some links with more information.
