Foliar feeding can help if you do so carefully, and according to instructions. Many plant foods, also, have foliar feeding instructions listed on the back.

As for making them taller... This will, mostly, be a genetic constraint. Sometimes you can get a little bit more out of a plant, but the height will largely be set by genetics.
