- Pruning. If your plants get away from you to the point where they make seeds and stop growing, shear off the top third of the stems and fertilize with a liquid fertilizer such as fish emulsion or water soluble 20-20-20. NEVER cut back too far down the stem where stems are woody, or the plant won't sprout back. To keep blooms from forming, just pinch the growing tips every week, which will encourage branching and more great leaves to enjoy!
