Hi, I've got this plant but I would like to cut it back but I have no idea what it is. Could anyone help please?

    It is a coloured form of Broom. Cytisus scoparius.

    Prune after flowers fade  gently. Do not cut into old wood.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    It's a broom, not sure which one (google 'red broom' to see if you recognise one.)  Prune after flowering by cutting back to young growth but don't cut into old wood.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
