Can I start cutting things back yet?
I know it is early to start the Fall clean up, but I would like to open things up to start planting my Spring bulbs soon. I'd also like to clear the way to Round-Up several mini trees and suckers from that old rose bush while they are still growing. It is mainly Irises and Lady's Mantle that I'd like to cut back. I also have Lilies, tall Balloon Flowers, Moonbeam Coreopsis, purple Coral Bells and Autumn Joy Sedum in the same area, but I will leave most of those standing over the Winter. So, is it ok to cut my Irises and Lady's Mantle now?
