Portulaca - A light trim to get it into shape

As you can see there is not much difference in the before and after pictures but I decided to give the Portulaca a light trim.  I simply cut off the stems which had dead flowers at the end and no buds in them.  I left all the stems with buds.  I have never trimmed a plant before so I decided to go easy on this one since it is the most successful plant so far :)

Once I finished the trim I watered it with some fertiliser to help it recover from the shock.  We'll see what happens.
