I read several sites suggesting cutting back grenadin kix carnatons after flowering to prmote better growth and additiinak flowering.

Mine did not flower last year. This year they were tremendous. However most of the sites that I read did not discuss how far back to cut them. So my question is do I cut them to the ground just a few inches off, or how much do I cut them? Also the promotion of additional flowering... is that for this season or next season?
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.
