I was given lots of plants like chrysanthemum, salvia, gaillardia and shasta daisy but I was wondering do I cut them back or do I leave them to die back on their own? I'm quite new to gardening and don’t have any idea. Any help will be appreciated.
Do I Cut Back Flowers

All of the plants you mention in your garden can be trimmed back to neaten the garden before winter.
I personally like to trim them back to about 4 to 6 inches high. This makes things easier in the spring when getting the garden going.
