CLEAN UP THE GAR­DEN

Garden Answers (UK) - - Celebrate -

Cut­ting back peren­ni­als in au­tumn not only cre­ates or­der in the gar­den, but it’s also a use­ful way of re­mov­ing de­bris that might har­bour pests or dis­eases over winter. Species that don’t har­bour pests will pro­vide winter in­ter­est as well as food and shel­ter for birds: these species can wait to be pruned in the spring. Dur­ing the year, re­move dead leaves and brown­ing stems to keep the gar­den look­ing tidy.
