I didn't cut it back in the autumn - should I have?  

If so, it's just beginning to wake up ... is it too late?

 If not, how low should I go?

    you can go as low as you like, after a bad winter the top can be dead anyway. Some people always cut them right back, like fuchsias.

    My pleasure Dove.

    I've dug mine up, It looked so tired and weed infested and the roots of both were under paving so I couldn't sort them out.

    I shall get another I think. The Hummingbird Hawkmoth likes it

    I'm with Nut, as usual. 

    I cut them almost to the ground every Spring.
