As you can see my hebe is look￼ing worse for wear!
I've just replanted it into this border and wondered how hard a prune it can withstand as it is very leggy.
Thanks in advance!

Hi LLM. From the photo it looks ok for now I would leave it and see what happens.
I had this identical plant last year and it grew straggly just as yours.
I took it out the pot and planted it same as you. Its now bushed out so I am hoping it puts on even more spread this year. They really do not like pruning when so young if I had to I would just prune a little
off the new wood but nothing drastic.
I'll leave it settle in and hope it follows in your hebes footsteps!
Update on this hebe...
It has grown in size but the plant is still very leggy and none of the bottom leaves have re-grown. I want to prune this to see if will rejuvenate as a fuller plant (I may be naive)
Can anybody advise me on if I should do this/how I should do this?
