Can I cut back Asters now?

sabeehasabeeha Posts: 292

I have some purple coloured Asters in my garden (sorry, don't know their name!) and they have finished flowering now, and just have fuzzy heads.

Is it ok to cut them right back now? Do I need to leave a little bit or can it be to the ground?

Thank you

    If they are the Michaelmas daisy type, yes you can cut them to the ground. If they are annual asters (bedding plants) They will not flower next year so you can pull them out.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
