Often these "safety" bottles are so awkward that they spill onto hands, clothes, everywhere.  And they leave an amount in the comtainer that cannot be used

At least Mark them with a short cane Lucid.  However, they will do better if potted up and planted out in a couple of weeks or so

The plants you cut back, I assume they are in the ground, should be left there to grow again this year Justin. 

Marc, depending on soil, climate, etc., bonariensis will grow pretty tall.  I pinch out to encourage more stems so less tall but still 6 or 7 '

It's such a temptation to let a young tree produce a fruit but resist.  Allow the tree to build up bEfore fruiting.  The blossom is fine.  Wont affect the development of the tree.

No just leave it for a while.  See what it does.  Feeding it or pruning it will not address its "distress" but could make it worse.  Hopefully spring will improve it
