Cut­ting back cro­cos­mia

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

WHEN flow­er­ing is over, cro­cos­mias seem to go down­hill quickly. Clumps of nar­row, strap-shaped, leaves start to turn brown and stand out like a sore thumb. Some gar­den­ers wait un­til the fo­liage is com­pletely bleached out, but I pre­fer to get in there early and cut back all the stems to just above ground level.
