No I didnt ML, I cut it right back all over it went from 6ftx6ft to about 4ftx4ft, I raked all the rubbish from underneath, I top dressed it with new compost and gave it a fish blood and bone feed, I also watered it till the leaves started to regrow. A bit drastic as it is 12 years old. This year it seemed to like the very dry conditions and so far no sign of any problems
