Cutting back a Hebe

Posted: 17/03/2015 at 17:25

I agree. I had 3 that I cut right back. They did regrow from the base but only to die, one the following year and two in the next year. They only made spindly, floppy growth and wouldn't have been very attractive if they had survived.

It may be early for leaves but I'd expect flowers unless it's a very young specimen that hasn't started flowering yet.

I don't think the bark scraping tells much initially, only when it's been dead for a while

Snip it back all over but keep it narrower at the top so the bottom isn't shaded

What is in my compost heap?

Probably some sort of fungus. Fungi spores are everywhere and most are either harmless or beneficial

Plant Identification please

Hi Birdy

I'd say Spanish bluebells for the bulbs

Possibly Linaria purpurea for the other but less confident on that
