hi should i cut my cranesbill down for the winter or leave until spring? same question also for a cardoon.




Hi Tilly, I would leave them be now as they will die down on their own and reappear next spring!

the dead material will also help as a 'mulch' to keep some of the frost off.
any good seeds could be sown and grown on too.
