I am no gardener, I inherited my Hebe last autumn along with a lot of my late mums shrubs. It was never potted on, it was never ever fed and only got watered when it rained. It was left in a shaded corner for years....I can remember using it for a goal post back in about 1970 so its well over 40 years old now. When I got it home I it was very leggy, and tatty. I had not a clue what I was doing so I just pruned everything off....put it in a better pot with some compost and left it outside over the winter. Now it has grown back, there are loads of branches and its lush with foliage. The purple flowers are just about to break open.
