How far back do I cut these please, and when do I do it? They still have flowers, though looking less attractive, and some of the leaves are yellowing and the green ones are looking tired.
Thank you. Lou

Hi, Lou,
Are you in a warm area to have flowers now? Nice! Cut back the flower stalks to the base and any leafy stems to about 40cm from the ground. When new growth emerges in spring, cut all the old back completely.

Hi Kathy, again.
Yes, we are on the South coast in Hampshire. This is very helpful, thank you very much - I shall go do as you say now!
Best wishes
