"Cut them back to new growth." What the heck does that mean in practical terminology?

@John,hope this helps. Around this time of year, annuals and perennials in containers and hangingRead More baskets can become leggy with flowers only at the end of long branches. At the same time, overly rambunctious growers can overwhelm neighboring plants, crowding or even suffocating them for lack of light and air. Renew leggy annuals and perennials by cutting back about half of the stems 2/3rds of the way to the base now. When those stems grow back and begin to bloom in about two weeks, cut back the remaining stems the same way. While you're at it, cut back aggressive growers as far as necessary to give surrounding plants space for healthy growth. Provide adequate water and keep fertilizing regularly with a well-balanced, soluble flower food. Your containers should look great all the way through late-October.
