Hi, this hebe has been in a pot 2 years this summer, it's had some weather damage but has fresh growth underneath so do I leave in the pot or replant in the garden. Also do I cut back the long stems to the new growth. Unfortunatly I can't remember which hebe it is it had pink flowers through last summer if thats any help. I also need id on some leaves that have popped up amongst some strawberry plants in the last few weeks they look like nettle leaves, are hairy and have a strong smell

    The hairy one - Lemon Balm maybe? What does it smell of?

    I think it's better to plant these into the ground. But it is totally up to you. If you do, make sure it's into free draining soil in full sun. You can give them a trim now, not too far back, they tend to suffer and take ages to rejuvenate on old branches. Don't delay anymore as new growth will go into autumn and then into winter, not ideal.

    The other growth next to the strawberries looks like Lemon Balm.

    I think the hairy one could be hedge woundwort?
