I havs some Lithodora plants tht have looked nice from early spring but they have now stopped flowereing almost and some of the shoots have gone woody and unsightly near to the roots. How do i manage this and keep them looking nice and also get rhem to flower again next yeAr



They are pruning group 8 and I trim mine and cut out any dead bits after flowering has finished.
Here is what the RHS say for Lithodora -
1. Early flowering evergreen shrubs (Pruning group 8) Timing: Prune immediately after flowering.
