Hi, I just pruned my Fatsia plant to remove the cluster of flowers. Now I’m wondering if I’ve ruined the plant. And what can I do to improve it’s appearance.

No worries, your fatsia is one tough plant so cut it back to a six inch stump for a fresh start or cut the tall stem down by two thirds for less drastic makeover. If you live in a cold winter area wait until spring to do any drastic pruning just to be on the safe side. Heavy pruning stimulates new growth and freezing temps can damage new growth. Keep growing, Marianne Binetti
