My gorgeous (once) ice plant is very long and leggy. it has also got very tiny flowers on it, if any at all, instead of glorious blooms. Should I cut them back to encourage more leafing and flowers?

    They have a short period when they bloom alot, them they will bloom sporadically for the rest of the summer. You could give them a LITTLE bit of fertilizer and see if they will put out any more this year for you.
