Last summer I planted some Black-Eyed Susans at my home in Indianapolis. I am just now learning that I should have cut them back in the fall. Is this true? If so, what should I do now with the brown plants that are still in my garden? Please help. Sincerely, Matt Walsh

You can leave Black Eyed Susan for the Winter garden interest and the birds to enjoy.
Go ahead and cut the flowers back now in the spring before the new growth appears.
