    what is the correct procedure for perenials . we usually cut our hosta, daylilly, and variegated lilltyturf right down to the ground in late fall. is this correct, or incorrect procedure?

    Hostas and daylillies i wait until the leaves have turned yellow, liriope grasses i cut back late fall. Any type of bulbs or perennials its best to wait until the leaves turn, if you cut before then the plant wont have the energy to grow good the next year.

    ^ there ya go........;)

    Hostas and lillies during our fall cleanup.

    Spring bulbs after they have yellowed or when installing annuals.

    Liriope and grasses we leave till spring cleanup. Grasses add interest to the winter landscape
