Some of our indigenous shrubs have the habit of looking untidy. This can be overcome if we pinch out the top two leaves of the stems/branchlets. This encourages more stems to grow from the base and we land up with a neat rounded shrub. it is time consuming but well worth the effort. Sometimes the shrub sends out one long branch and that needs to be pruned back to the length of the others. Your perseverance will be rewarded.
