Lucid, same poor plants from crocus but I also found customer care non existent. 

i popped into B&Q to see what plants they had and what might be coming in and what crocus had.......decided I might be wrong about Crocus so checked .    Plus and minus re range of plants but in B & Q were much bigger for less money.

there are a increasing number of online growers now so shop around

Kitty, you can cut it back as hard as you like.. 

Couple of things

it is really tough and resilient.

if you don't cut it it will produce delightful blue flowers.  Cut it and you won't.

I would repot or take it out of the pot and tease some soil away from bottom, sides and  top.  I would then fill in with fresh compost...I would use john innes number 2 mixed witb perlite
