Potentilla

Hello everyone. I have been tidying my borders today and my inherited Potentilla shrubs are looking decidedly straggly. Is it ok to trim them to a neat shape or should I cut them back more than that? Also, I asked once before about Cranesbill care but is now a good time to divide the overgrown clumps? The chopping down to near ground level after flowering worked a treat (thanks to whover recommended that!) and the clumps are looking very healthy though I know they will die down over winter.
I hope someone can help with these two queries - I feel I am getting there at last with my borders and I do make notes of the advice I'm given!

Thank you, Tia.

I'd trim the potentilla to a neat shape; and yes I'd divide your cranesbill now.

<<hope I'm right...>>
