At work I have a hebe growing about 2.5ft tall and 3-4 wide if i cut it back to let’s say 1.5-1ft tall would it recover?



Yes but tis not very likely to get any bigger than it is now anyway.

yes but if you are concerned cut back 1/3 of the stems in an evenly spaced manner. then new growth will occur from the cut stems. then next year remove another 1/3 and so on.

Good advice SBG as they are slow to regenerate.
