Gunnera Manicata Overwintering
I have a newly acquired (this spring) young Gunnera in a pot. I quickly transferred it to a permanently boggy, north facing area of my bed and as a resuly has flourished this year.
My question is, as there have been a few frosts in the morning, when should I go about protecting the crown (with mulch, etc)? I'm aware its a good Idea to fold over the dead/dying leaves onto the crown and cover with mulch, etc, but the leaves still look very much alive to me, and I don't want to end up killing it!
Please ignore the messy compost everywhere!
