Hi, Have I left it too late to cut back this Crane’s Bill and should I just leave it now?  Thanks

    I only cut mine right back to the ground just over a week ago and plenty of new growth already - go for it!
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Which Crane's Bill? If you mean a hardy geranium there are many different ones which flower at different times. 

    If yours has finished flowering and its leaves look tatty I would cut it back, most regrow and look better, may even produce more flowers.

    Agree, if you shear it over now and give it a good drink, new leaves will appear within a few weeks.

    will adding Tomorite help at all?

    No. Not needed. Just water.  :)
