Why prune? It may well be that they do not flower because you ARE pruning. They flower on wood produced this year, so any pruning now is going to remove flowers.

They sound terribly small for 4 years old. I grew P. Katrina from a cutting takeb 2 years ago and that is over 6 feet tall already and good and bushy too. Had a few flowers this year and plenty of new growth for flowers next.

To be honest I think they may well be too root constricted in a pot, they do better in the garden where the roots can sprad out.

Thing is, if you sow some this year and then seeds from your bought bulbs next year and so on, eventually you will have bu;lbs coming into flower from your own sowings, every year.
