Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

1 Foenicu­lum vul­gare ‘Pur­pureum’

– Cut back the flow­er­ing stems of bronze fen­nel to pre­vent self seed­ing and to en­cour­age fresh fo­liage.

2 Al­chemilla mol­lis –

The seed heads of lady’s man­tle are not that at­trac­tive so cut old flow­er­ing stems to ground level.

3 Heme­ro­cal­lis –

Once flow­er­ing is over the fo­liage of day lilies can look tired. Cut back hard and new fo­liage will emerge.
