I had some Violas that went Boom and grew really tall and leggy in a period of sunshine last year, then near the end of the year we had high winds and they all fell over. I cut them back right to the bottom, so there were some new leaves left but most of the plant was cut off. With water, food and topdressing (they're in pots) they put on a spectacular display from early this year. As they are now, as Verdun says, running out of steam a bit they could maybe do with a similar treatment now.
