Mums & Asters: To Cut Back or Not To Cut Back (In Late Fall)
I live in Atlanta and have several mums and asters that I planted in September. I believe that they are established enough to grow back in the spring. I read in one place that I should wait until after the first hard freeze, cut them back, and then mulch over what remains. Will this allow them to come back in the spring? If so, how far do I cut them back?
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
