Perennials That Need to Be Cut Down in Fall — 2 Comments

  1. I have the red poppy in my yard. I cut them down in August after blooming. They now have new green foliage and it is October. Do I cut back again before winter?

    • No, I wouldn’t cut it back again at this point.
      Let the plant grow a bit before winter sets in, the foliage will likely turn brown and the plant will use it for winter protection.
      Then in late spring when you see the new green growth again, cut off all of the brown stems to allow the new growth to emerge.
