If it is getting adequate sun it should have the energy needed to sustain strong growth. Otherwise it will not. I would continue to fertilize using a turf fertilizer at a rate of 1 cup per 100 square feet of soil surface area applied in March, May and July. Continue to prune in order to shape the plant but only periodically as this encourages more branching and thinner growth.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
