Hard to tell, Doddy. The center has obviously gotten woody and fallen open--common in older plants--but I don't see any signs of pests or disease.

Maybe take a few cuttings to replace the old plants next year, but nothing else needed that I can see.

First thing I would do is browse through the C section of GoYpedia, below, especially cuttings and carnations.
