cytisus "lena" broom

My plant is just losing its flowers and now has seed pods on, do i remove the seed pods, and how and when do i prune...



You prune it now, cutting each branch back to strong sideshoots (do not cut into the old wood). Remove any seed pods still left after the pruning - this will concentrate the plant on making new growth for next year's flowers

My plant lost all the flowers. Looks between green and brown the branches. Do I need to prune? Has to be in a pot by itself? What happens during winter time?
