Neil, can you put up a cloche or get a cold frame?  Or get a few boxes and cover with clear plastic lid?   Or turn the nest down on your conservatory?

its still cold at night so your annuals will not do well outside just yet esp coming from a heated environment.

Cutting back a Hebe

Posted: 17/03/2015 at 19:51

Hiya Mattc

I grow a couple of hebes......salicifolia.....that are some 10' tall.  I prune after flowering and do this by cutting back to lowest new shoots. you can cut older stems but only if to buds. 

i would also take cuttings....quite easy....and replace.  If you want a 2 or 3' shrub you can buy smaller varieties that are almost that height. Buy a replacement now and you will,have something nice in that space for this season. ,make sure you replenish your soil well
