When Do You Cut Back Flax Plants?

pewisely added on August 15, 2013 | Answered

I have flax plants in a border planting and they get tall and floppy sometimes. The soil isn't particularly rich and they don't get a lot of water.   When I have cut off the plant tops, the whole plant seems to die. If the stems are used for linen, surely the plant gets cut back for this use. What happens when the plants are harvested for linen making?
