Barry,

Prune them back by 1/2 in late winter. Then after the first bloom flush fades shear them back a little to remove the spent blooms and encourage more growth and blooms. You can repeat this once or twice more during the growing season. It may help to provide a little fertilizer and then water it in well following each shearing.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
