Sorry Hazel - I didn't see your post last night. They'll have got lanky because of how they've been grwoing. It might be tricky to separate them, but it's worth having a go. If you leave them and just pot them on, they're not going to be brilliant anyway as they'll just get tangled together, and won't have a good air flow through them which tends to lead to mildew etc.
If you can gently tease them apart to the best of your ability, and even get two or three in a small pot, that will benefit them. Soak the pot really well before hand, and that might make it easier. If you can only get a clump of four or so, you can nip one or two out completely and just leave two. I reckon if you get five decent plants from that pot, you'll do well. Sacrifice a few and you'll get a better result as they need a good bit of room to thrive.
If you have any seed, sow some in a few weeks. They'll grow on quickly and catch up, and you'll then have a good succession of plants for not much effort.
Good luck with yours ppatter - I've not done the dwarf ones before, but I know people who have. They're good in those wall baskets if you can keep them moist and fed enough through the driest weather.
