My Spurge fell over!

Question from Jaime Bodiford

After a big rainstorm my spurge has completely fallen over. Is it best to throw away the whole plant or should I try to right it and prune it? The plant was about 3.5 feet tall and fairly leggy.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I forgot to prune


I forgot to prune my euphorbia last autumn; so now i have some straggly old stems and some flimsy new ones and no flowers. Is it best to prune it now (Early May) anyhow, so the new shoots get a chance to get away. Help please!

Not many flowers

Question from Ineke Swallow

My Euphorbia wulfenii will be two years old this spring. The first year it had no flowers, last year only two and this year I am not too confident that it will get many more flowers. Any ideas what the cause could be? In size it has grown very big though..

Euphorbia characias subsp. wulfenii

Question from Nell


I want to move this plant this year - it's flowering at the moment so I was going to move it when it had finished. I heard that they might sulk after being moved so was wondering if there was a particular time that it was best to move it to minimize any petulant behaviour!!
