I have a small Anisodontea pink plant in a pot which flowered all summer this year. Can you tell me how and when I should prune this plant - it now has no flowers just seeds and I am not sure how far back I should prune it for flowering next year. Thank you.



Doesn;t seem to be necessary to prune it at all, other than removing seed heads or spent flowers if you want. If you've been growing it outdoors, its frost tender, so should be removed to a greenhouse or similar for the winter.

Hi, welcome to GoY, these just need dead heading, and tip pruning to keep in shape, but don'tdo it now, mid to late spring is the time to prune if necessary, {pruning group 9}
