My bougainvillea is just getting its new leaves (lives in my conservatory). Should I take off the spiky bits where it flowered last year or just leave them and they will get covered?

Asked from the GoYpedia bougainvillea page



I'd nip them off, personally, before they get covered.

How do I say thanks?
