Monday 10/20/08 cutting the plants back for winter...

It is almost time to cut back all of the plants before winter. I don't want to cut them back too soon, if it gets warm again, they will all try to re-grow. I really don't want to cut them back twice.Because we have the house up for sale, we kept a lot of our bigger plants cut back this summer. This really made our yard look bigger. When we do cut all of the plants back, there won't be as much to do.
The rose bush clippings that we planted are doing OK. We planted seven cuttings: one sprouted, five are still green, but haven't sent out any shoots, and one died. I hope that they make it through the winter.
