Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
I'm slowly getting to grips with pruning and understand the general rule that the right time is when the shrub has finished flowering. There are always exceptions to the rule and I wonder if my Choisya has an independant spirit as it throws up vigorous new shoots from the centre of the flower clusters before they have finshed flowering apart from those coming from the normal places. If I prune the shrub when the flowers are finished, what should I do about all the new growth? I'm scared of losing next year's flowers.
