This sounds normal for broom.

Sorry maybe i didnt make myself clear most of the plant has gone really woody and there are only a few flowers left at the top of the plant maybe half a dozen

jackie it may just be coming to the end of its life.  brooms usually are short lived, go woody naturally unless pruned correctly when very young and dont relish pot culture.  maybe replace now?

Jackie, Verdun is spot on. I've never had a Broom in the garden that has really flourished after 5 yrs,
