A n established plant no flowers this year now it has mildew?on its leaves .Do I cut it down or dig it out or just leave it. Thanks



I always 'tidy up' my Aquilegias, pulling off the dead leaves: and fresh ones grow in the spring anyway - so I would try cutting most of the leaf stales back to the base.

Agree with Spritz - cut it down, leave in place for next year.

Same here, agree !

Mavis, some of mine have mildew on and i just cut off those leaves, they produce leaves like there's no tomorrow so it's not going to hurt :-))
