I have had this plant for several years and I can’t remember what it is called. Can anyone help? I have always grown it in a pot and it always produced nice flowers but hasn’t done for the last couple of years. It looks quite sad at the moment with brown patches on the very few leaves that are left. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thin out a bit removing twiggy growth and crossing branches, if you are feeling brave you could shorten the remaining branches down to a healthy looking leaf.
If the compost is compacted this doesn't allow the roots to breathe so remove the gravel and scrape off 3 or 4 inches of soil using a fork garden or cutlery whatever works then top up with fresh compost but if it was mine I would try and remove it from it's pot and have a look at the roots to see how congested they are. You can root prune the sides and bottom then return it to the pot with fresh compost. If the roots don't fill the pot just loosen off as much of the old compost you can and report with fresh.
