Hebe Help!!

As a general rule, prune after flowering unless there is risk of frost. If you're really not sure then don't prune at all and the worst that could happen is a larger plant than you want

 I started with a single plant that was known as Mrs Perry, salmon pink flowers which have since multiplied and changed colour to include baby pink with thick stems and orangey red of a slender stature, seen here

Lovely pics everyone 

WilDb especially difficult for you to make a garden on borrowed land. Nice idea of yours

Walked to town this morning since I had some nervous energy to burn, needed L plates but Wilko's didn't do the right kind. Picked up some car wash stuff though and washed/waxed the car this afternoon in the scorching heat, but first I planted the last of my dark blue salvias in the sunny border to balance all the orangey/red colours 

Been relaxing for rest of the day but next door's kids have just come home and footballs and arguments begin

Enjoy your day out Dove plus Wonky, hope the vets isn't traumatic for the pet Jo and best of luck to the youngest chicklette!

How many plants you got there Lyn? 

That's a clump to be reckoned with 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Good luck with what you plant anew David 

Gorgeous day here today, moved nearly a ton of stone to fill in thin patches across my garden paths, especially where little paws skid round when having a nutty. 

Stopped for visitors and then planting up part of my large sunny border with Lupin masterpiece and those tangerine geums that all the Chelsea designers can't get enough of at the moment. 

But first I had to remove a pale blue iris and a small leaved hebe with white flowers that just wasn't working. The hebe got sent straight back to where it's parent used to live before it got trampled, the iris got chopped into three pieces and potted up, free plants, yes please and thank you very much 

Finished a gorgeous afternoon by potting on my shop bought Cosmos and my self sown Rudbeckia and Cerythe, if that's how you spell it

Have a good day at the salt mines chicky et al
