You may have cut them in the part of the stem which is the 'growth zone'.  Try Mir-acid by Miracle grow daily or a soil Ironizer w/ acidifier to stimulate growth.  On second thought mix that 1/2 and 1/2 with the miracle-gro Bloom booster which is high in phosphorous-stimulating blooms.  Because its water-soluble no worry about harming environment via-run-off.
Sounds like  took too much off.  There is a special fertilizer for it at all lawn & garden stores.  Check the package....maybe some in fall and some in spring.

Don't trim....the buds for next year form this year....you need special fertilizer available in the lawn & garden section of the store.
