Chrysanthemum Plants
Q.

Do I cut back flowers

Zone Cheltenham Gloucestershire | Imaginarium added on September 9, 2015 | Answered

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.

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.
