Veronica spicata - Where to cut and should I move it?
I am trying to start a balcony garden and am all sorts of confused. Presently, the most pressing issue is the Veronica ('Royal Candles') plant I bought several weeks ago. I moved it out of its original container one week ago and into a new clay pot. I'd read about the importance of good drainage, so I rigged up a nice little drainage system. I've since learned, however, that the pot is probably way too big. (I chose a large one based on the spacing information provided on the tag.) So I'm not sure if that's the problem or not, but I'm wondering:
1. How can I help it revive? I know you're supposed to cut off the spent flowers, but I'm having trouble knowing where to cut, as the flowers are in little bunches. And should I pull off all the droopy leaves?
2. Would it be bad to move it again, to a smaller pot? Or, would it do any good to add another plant or two to the big pot?
I'd greatly appreciate any advice!
