Slaughter it back to the thick stems. It will regrow,lots of whippy shoots, summer prune them back by two thirds, then next February cut back to two shoots.

I made a home for lacewings in the bug house. Roll up corrugated cardboard, and stuff it into a 2l pop bottle, cut down to the straight sided bit. Lay it on its side in a sunny protected position.

I have clayey soil where they have gone, I dug in a sack of peat and some sharp grit to help drainage. They flowered last year and have come up again this year.

I worked out why you thought it was a kids dose. The buccal form is used to stop an epileptic fit in children. Different use hence different dose.
