I have had this Hebe for probably 20 years, it was moved once in it's time but has been in the current position for about 5 years. The last 2 years it has looked quite sickly and stragley, last year it seemed to flower ok, but quickly went over. This year it has hardly flowered at all and now looks as in the pic below.
Can I cut it right back to base and hope it will send up new shoots, or is it just 'old and tired'?
Am not sure exactly which Hebe it is but have included a pic of one the flowers it did produce. We would hate to lose it as it brings fond memories of one of our cats who always sat under it for shade. The wife calls it Charlies Bush
Many thanks for any help...
Sorry pics will not upload will add later !
