Hi there,

We've recently (beginning of April) planted a few schrubs, including a Genista Fragrans, called as well "Cytisus racemosus" or "Sweet Broom" but it seems to exist different types.

Anyway, after a week where it looked great (evergreen schrub with nice yellow flowers), we left Ireland for a week, which turned into 2 weeks and a half because of Volcanic ashes and apparently, it didn't rain in Ireland for all this time.

This shrub and an other one looked a bit dry when we came back (while other plants just grew wild) and I started to water it, regurlarly.
A few days later, a bit of wind and it lost all its leaves.

Now, there are some new buds and leaves coming at the end of the branches, but I wonder if the leaves are going to come back on the other branches, or if I should prune it a little bit... or what?

Let me know if you need a picture and I'll go and take one for you.

Thanks...
