Plant was new last year, no flowers but plenty of growth. This year some flowers and plenty of bread growth but not many fliers. Should I prune now fliers have gone. Where and how to prune please .

    Plenty of new growth but not many flowers. How to prune after flowers have died

    At the risk of sounding like Jaws, it'll need a much bigger container.
    Flowers are usually left on for winter protection, before pruning in spring.  
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Agree with @Fairygirl. They are not suited to small pots, if you put it in the ground, loads of water it will grow on nicely,   May not get any more flowers now this year but prune of the dead flowers and a few inches of shoots down to a leaf bud in April and it will flower next year.
