I have 2 huge hebe that are about 1.5m tall by approx 1.5m wide. They are sprawling over the wall and on to the driveway. How hard can I prune them back? Will they grow again if cut back into old wood? I have 3 or 4 others in the flower beds and they too have about 18" of bare wood and then huge canopies of leaves and flowers. They are beginning to get top heavy. I would really like to prune them also.

Hi, Nikki,
If you search forums here on Shoot, using the search term 'Hebe pruning', you will find a great forum response from Janine Pattison MSGD she gave when another person asked the same question during a forum event. Didn't want to take her answer so, perhaps have a look at her reply?
All the best,
Kathy C
