: Thanks Newt

: The first shrub bloomed a couple of days ago and I took a picture. It's on the same webpage next to it. The second shrub bloomed already. It had yellow flowers on it.

Hi Steph,

Your first shrub still looks like a viburnum to me. The second is probably a forsythia if the blooms appeared before the leaves. Take a look at this picture.

If this is it, when you are ready to prune it, cut the oldest stems to the ground and let the remaining branches cascade in a fountain shape.
