Should I have cut the aubretia hard back? I can't remember what I usually do.



Hi, Aubretia is usually cut back after flowering, to keep it compact, if you cut it back now, it could have an adverse affect on flowering next spring, so I would leave it for this year, it's only cut back to keep it compact, you can cut back next year, Derek.

Thanks Derek. I thought I'd left it too late and to be honest,
I hope the length it is now will prevail.

Hi, if you just cut back to where you want it to be next year , it should be ok, Derek.

Thanks Derek, I've done that. I love it when it flowers.
