Hopefully you can access my photo of a hebe "Mrs Winder". It has grown much larger than I want. Firstly are hebes like lavender ie I should not cut into old wood. Secondly if is not can I just use a pair of shears. Over the last two years I would not say I have had a 'profusion' of flowers. Any help much appreciated.
Thanks Christopher. That sounds better than my slash and burn approach. I am in Weymouth so winters are not particularly hard. This plant is only about two years old so, assuming it survives my next ministrations, I will be more attentive in the future. Thanks again.
Agree totally with advice given. Leave any pruning until at least late April/May depending on whereabouts in UK you are. Definitely take cuttings. They usually 'take' really easily.
If it's only a 2yrs old plant & you're already finding it too big, is it a case of 'right plant, wrong place'? Possibly consider moving it, or re-siting once the cuttings have taken? J.
Roger to both. Wilco. Out. Cheers
