'The Chelsea Chop': How to do gardener's essential pruning method that 'improves flowers'

Why should you cut back plants?

Cutting back plants can prevent the plants from getting “leggy”. What does this mean?

Leggy plants are those which have grown too long in certain shoots, with flowers growing at the end of long stems.

This can make plants floppy and will leave gardeners with fewer shoots and flowers.

By cutting back stems the plant will put its energy into growing new shoots and so overall will produce more flowers.
