I NORMALLY cut it back by about a third in autumn after it has flowered, in case of windrock, then hard back in the early spring - to healthy pairs of buds. As it had flowers and buds, I've left it to flower - but as soon as the flowers stop - out with my secateurs!

I think yours needs secateurs as well, Jacque! They can get out of control. Give it a prune.
