Any info on cutting back dead asters for the winter?
by Wrennie on December 18, 2006 01:17 AM
I cut my asters and chrysanthemums just about down to the ground and then mulch over them with leaves.

Yep, cut them down..
*or I just leave them for spring clean up when I'm looking for brown for my compost bins..*
The roots are where your next plant comes from,
it'll send up new shoots from there and send a bit long runner root alot a path and then send up another plant from there also.....

I love asters..
I have lot's of wild ones, all different colors..
sooooo pretty.. and the honey bees are loving them late fall..

I've got some aster seeds I hope to have a place to put them next year. They are so pretty.

Good idea sibyl.

Know why ? It falls over and makes a natural cover for the plant an seeds below....It wont blow away.....

Good thinking. And less to pick up in the spring.. It shrinks.
