Don’t Clean Up! Did you know plants with hollow stems should be left unpruned to prevent root rot caused by water access? Leaving plants to die naturally also helps maximize nutrients to the roots. It’s especially important for perennials. Dead foliage provides insulation, encourages root survival and, when covered with snow, adds interesting shapes to your yard.
Additionally, leaving plants in place provides food and shelter to a variety of birds and critters during the long winter months. For more gardening tips, visit FortWhyte’s Naturescape page at http://www.fortwhyte.org/naturescape
