Does a large Chrysanthemum that has gfinished flowering need cutting down or just take off the flowerheads and leave the foliage, or will the foliage need cutting off also when the foliage dies.

Also, would it need proteting in an unheated mini greenhouse?




If its been out in the ground all winter, I'd leave it alone Alex, not cutting either, though you could deadhead if you wanted. We don't know what the weather's going to do next and it's still only January, so cutting now wouldn't be a good idea. See how it looks in spring and cut then if you need to.
