You can cut some branches hard back and leave some unpruned to have foliage and flowers.

Its a lovely thing BRISTOL.  A good mulch of ericaceous compost too

If me, I would grow it on in pot of compost, plant out in late May and dig up in September, divide and pot on for winter.  Guarantee it will work or my name is not Monty Don

Then Chris P is wrong or you misconstrued  aym 

rain and vibration are the reasons for worms to surface as I understand it.  Apparently there are contests where tapping the soil causes worms to scale the heights.

I planted a nandina domestica for a friend last year.  I selected a protected, shady, cool, moist position.  It looks good. 

BRISTOL, I think you have amswered your own question?  No, I don't think it will recover where it is so move it to a more suitable spot.
