With scissors or hand-pruners, cut stems back by one-half to two-thirds. Then, with a kitchen fork, loosen and aerate the compacted soil. Poke gently, however, to avoid injuring roots.
Next, feed with one half-tablespoon of a high-phosphorous plant food dissolved in one gallon of water. Apply this formula daily, and you will see new growth and sweet blooms within a few week’s time.
