Not happy with the non trimming overwintering experiment.
So for like the last ten years, I trimmed all my perrenials after the big frosts killed most of them. This last year I finally tried the , let them be and trim in spring method, overall, I dont see where this has helped protect any of my plants, however, its helped collect more leaves and allowed more weeds to grow in the protection of the larger plants.
Im going back to fall trimming this year! Its much simpliar to start out with a cleaner garden then to go through this mess again.
Maybe if I didnt have a woodland garden, it would make a diffrence.
