I have a hebe that is out of control.Will i damage it if i cut it back now?



Most hebes will regenerate off old wood, and now would be the time to prune hard.

We've found that they rebound from pruning - my OH has got a bit "lopper-happy" with hebe's a few times, but they always recovered.

I cut a big straggly one right back almost to the base, half one year and half the next. It rejuvenated beautifully.

How do I say thanks?
