Answer: It sounds as though your St. John's Wort took its time to become established, probably due to transplant stress and droughty conditions. New growth is reassuring, showing that the roots have finally established themselves. I'd trim away the old dead tops of the plant to allow room for healthy new growth. Pruning encourages new growth so in addition to removing all the sad looking foliage, your plant should respond by growing healthy new stems and leaves. It should bloom for you later this year. Enjoy!
