Hi Could any one tell me what this?
Looks like a Hebe
Thank you, that's what I thought. I've just done this to it...have I done a bad thing?
Lol ouch it will recover or ouch it's doomed?
It was a nice plant.
Kind of late to be asking
I know I feel so bad but something had to be done. I've just bought the property and apparently it's never been cut back so I thought I'd try......
It's difficult to prune a Hebe that harshly and get away with it. I think you've got a 50/50 chance of it recovering and if it does it's going to take a few years, sorry!
I have a few years that's ok. Should I give it something? Like food or something
Think I'd dig it out and start again.
No, Hebe's tend to take care of themselves, so I wouldn't feed it - it may stress it to much. I also agree with Pete, you'd be better off digging it out and replacing it.
I'm staring to think I'm going to have to do that to the entire garden. Just out of interest what would you both have done?
A light trim, not into brown wood after flowering would work. But I cant actually see that its totally out of hand.
Wait till you see what I've done to the corkscrew hazel
