Leycesteria Formosa Help.

I had this beautiful plant flowering few years ago but then it didn't flower and there was no foliage so I cut the dried looking stems quite hard which probably made matters worse. It didn't flower or shown any sign of foliage last year but I still left it as it but this year it shows some signs of foliage and a tiny flower.

I wonder if anyone can give me any advice to improve things for this plant.




It used to look like this couple of years ago.

Why not take a cutting from the new shoots and start again, it usually grows very easily.
