Could you please advise when and how to prune the above. The plants were put in the garden this year and still have some flowers on. We do not want them to get leggy.

Hope you can help

Hi, Phil,
Hebes are in pruning group 9 so the best time to prune is in mid-spring. They only like light pruning at most so renovating a leggy plant can be tricky. Another member gave some great advice on renovation pruning for Hebes in a forum a while back that may be of use to you: http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/forum/topic/view/topicid/4095. Also, adding this plant to your Plants I Have list will give you full, detailed instructions on how to best care for it.
