I bought a Skimma Rubella in early summer while it was in flower; I cut the dead flowers off once they'd finished. The regrowth you can see in the picture appeared about about a month or so ago and hasn't changed since. I thought perhaps these were buds that for some reason hadn't bloomed and should be removed. I've since read though that Skimmias produce buds in November that flower the following spring - is it possible that mine's done this a little early? Or should I prune these back?
Any advice gratefully received, I'm new to (container) gardening this year!
