Don’t Be Shy: Cut These Plants Back Before Spring!
March is an ideal time to cut back the following garden plants. It is a much easier task before the new growth appears.
With this winter’s temperatures dipping lower than in recent years throughout much of the country, some plants may have been lost while others are only damaged. Don’t be overzealous in removing them from the garden. Established woody plants with top growth killed stand a good chance of returning from their roots. It could be as late as June before you know for sure.
