Should i prune or not? It's looking brown with leaves just beginning to show but has dead flower heads.

On plant Ceratostigma willmottianum



This dies back to the ground every winter, so yes you will need to prune away the dead branches. Prune back to the green shoots.

Give it a sprinkling of bonemeal or Growmore too, for extra oomph!
