Brunnera Alexanders Great

Zone Nottingham | Chris.lampon added on November 3, 2015 | Answered

I have a couple of young plants which are quite spindly but now have the secondary leaves. As they are still quite small, could you give me any tips for care over the colder months? I am concerned because they are young, but they may well be more robust than they seem! Many thanks

The recommendation is to just let the leaves die down for winter protection of these leafy perennials.

Since you mention they are small with not much structure, adding 4 to 5 inches of organic mulching material will help.
Leaves will work for this.
