Pruning perennial plants - 01. November 2021

The dead flowers and stems of your perennial plants can be cut about 10 cm from the ground in autumn. This means they’ll be ready to grow back next spring! These plant remains can be composted and will enrich the soil.

But you should also think about biodiversity: Leaving certain stems or plants like sunflowers will provide a source of food to birds. Forming piles of branches and stems, will provide shelter to hedgehogs and other important organisms.
