Limp hebe

Kieran WoodKieran Wood Posts: 67

Hi there


i have a hebe I believe is called a globe variety I bought it last year and it spread very quickly to fill a large pot. The plant was good until a few months ago when it has gone limp as if something has sat on it but i don't think that has happened. I tried watering it a few times and it hasn't perked up.

would anyone have any ideas?

kind regards

    Check for vine weevil in the pot. They may have eaten the roots

    Hi there


    thanks I will check tomorrow morning. If it is vine weevil is there anything I can do to save the plant.


    kind regards

    It depends how much of the root they've eaten - take it out of the pot - remove all compost, wash the roots gently and repot in fresh compost - put it somewhere shady and cross your fingers.
