My candytuft needs to be cut back so I will do that in the fall, but the flowers are already spent and it's only May. What do I do to get it to keep flowering? I also didn't know they like acidic soil, so I will take care of that.

If you cut the stems back by 1/3 after they bloom in the spring this may encourage a re-bloom come fall.
