I bought this plant from the "Poorly section :)" of a garden centre with the hope of nursing it. I think it was exposed to the frosty weather that we had and has somewhat wilted but doesnt seem be regain its shape and has wilting branches. If I were to cut it back will it regain its health again?
"I am impressed with Shoot. Thank you!"
