I have two Callas in separate pots and they have been lovely this year. The leaves on both are wilting and flopping over the sides of the pots (they are very big leaves). Should I cut the leaves back or leave them to die back, although they are very unslightly. Any advice would be gratefully received.



I usually let mine die back like the hostas. they do look a little unsightly but there is a corm for them to feed until the last 'moment'.

Yes, I do the same Sbg...then keep them in dry compost all winter.

Thank you both, I did think it'd be wrong to cut them down, I'll just have to grin and bear it!
