Q.african violets grow very well, flowered, but now have lots and lots of leaves and are finished flowering. do i take some leaves off please?
I TRIM S0ME LEAVES OFF PLEASE? I HAVE GROWN LOTS OF THESE, BUT FIRST TIME, THEY HAVE GROWN SO MUCH LEAVES – PERHAPS I HAVE FEED THEM TOO MUCH? Appreciate your comment as incidentally it is useless asking at garden centres as staff only there to sell, not give any advice!!

You can definitely pinch away the leaves at the bottoms of the stems and pluck out any spent blooms and older leaves. Here's an article about pruning your violets: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/african-violet/trimming-african-violets.htm
