when is the best time to cut back aubretia



Any time it starts to look spent and straggly. Some of mine was strimmed level to the ground today by our garden friend. The others were strimmed with 3-4 inches of stem left about 3 weeks ago, just before the rain started. They are nice bushy little plants now, with a few flowers out too. The ones strimmed today may be replaced anyway Annie. As that part of the border needs sorting. I have pots of geraniums nearly on top of them. They are tough long lived plants with a long repeat flowering time if watered and fed around now.
