Ruthannn: bringing brugs in question
Ruthann, I've been reviewing your tutorial on bringing in brugs and I've seen how huge and wonderful your inground planted brugs get up there in Canada. (I'm in Colorado with 4 months guaranteed summer.) There has been discussion of how to "guarantee" earlier blooms, such as when cutting back for the winter, cut back above a "Y". However your method suggests cutting back to a very short stem, no "Y", before putting plants into dormancy. And even the root balls have been trimmed severely. So can you explain why your method produces such great growth in such a short season?
