once the flowers have died,do you just leave alone for next year or is it best to remove the top flowering part

On plant Veronica



Well on mine i cut the spent stalk to the leafy green part at the base.
Other people might do differently with theirs though .... we all have different ways of doing things, don't we ?
Which Veronicas do you have there ?

thank you for your help, much appreciated

I am not entirely sure which one I have as i am fairly new to gardening.

Have you still got the label that came with it ?
It's a good idea to keep hold of them so you can remind yourself of what you have in the garden, especially as you get more 'into it'.
