Our Hebes are specially selected by us to be low maintenance plants that require very little attention, some liquid food during once or twice during the summer months will help promote growth, though this is merely a suggestion not a necessity. If the plant becomes too large for its chosen spot it is preferable to trim back over a period of months rather than in one attempt, this will result in a bushier healthier plant.
