I'm out in the greenhouse looking over what arrived yesterday and I have two of these. I've tidied them up a little around the bottom, removed the dead leaves and little bits of wood but should I take all the thicker parts out? What about the long stems where they've been dead headed and just left long and bare, should I cut them back to the leaves? Also, when I repot should I fill them so the compost is covering a bit more of the bottoms where it looks like I can see roots? Thanks in advance for any advice

    Personally l would get it Iin the ground ASAP if you can. It looks a bit starved in the pot. It also looks like it could be divided into 2, but that's just my instinct telling me that !
    If you can't plant it out yet, l would definitely repot it. Normally it would be coming into flower around now, and then cut back in the autumn. 
    Hopefully others can advise  :)
