Hello, I have an oleander in a pot, which is currently located in a room. Buds are started to show. Should I cut them back so that new shoots can grow in spring, or should I leave them?

Dear Mr W., it is essential that you leave them, otherwise you will be snipping off precisely those flower buds which are supposed to flower this summer! Oleander develops the buds for the following year in the autumn of the previous year.
