Strangely enough I was looking at the Hebe Society site for advice on the same thing, and they say: "We have grown this plant for 25 years and have cut it hard back twice. It would be best to leave any cutting back until spring, as any cuts will not have time to heal before the winter, then rot can get in. Yes they do break from old wood." One of my large Hebe pinguifolia 'Sutherlandii' is looking shaggy - the other served the chop a few years ago. I think they will be fine.

Hebe pruning

Question from Brian

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

I have a number of Hebes in my garden (Hebe pinguifolia 'Sutherlandii' (Hebe 'Sutherlandii' ) and Hebe rakaiensis (Shrubby veronica). They are all 12 year old and have never been pruned. They are beginning to look straggly with open areas in the centre. What can I do to recover them?
