    Hello everyone,
    I have a wall flower plant that has grown all spindly and for some reason, has fallen down, so that it grows along the ground then upwards. How can I fix this?

    I want to prune it and don't want to kill it. It has finished blooming, pretty much and I've heard that they do not seed themselves as this species is sterile. " Fragrant Sunshine". So I'm not afraid to cut the seed pods off. I just need to know where on the plant is the safest place to prune it back so it grows straight from the original stalk.

    Thank you,
    JustPeg

    Are they growing in full sun, or in a shady position? To grow well, they need full sun.

    My wall flowers are in Full Sun. They have the lovliest of silver grey leaves but it's the old wood coming out of the ground that bothers me. It almost lays on the ground and therefore makes them look leggy and scruffy, cause all you see is this old wood coming out of the ground. lol
