Q.Rock Garden Pruning
I live in an Homeowner’s Association area with an 80′ x 5′ boulder type rock garden. It blooms profusely in spring and then goes dead. We want to add summer/fall blooming plants. The spring plants that have bloomed are two feet tall, and spilling down the slopes with lots of dry dead wood inside. Question: How do we, should we prune them back for their health and good looks and to create space for our new summer/fall plantings?

Yes, you can safely cut the plants back, especially if they are getting out of control or beginning to look unsightly.
