I think you'll have to wait until the chicks have gone to do anything major.

However, there's nothing to stop you cutting the stems at the bases where you know that there are no nests - then those pieces at least will die and be able to be pulled out more easily later.

What's the weather like in your area?

Perhaps fortunately, the lawn can't be cut here because of the crocus leaves...

Unless it's been very warm where you are your plant is suffering from the sharp swings in temperature, and possibly wind.

Keep it indoors until the temperatures have risen considerably and it should recover.

Another thought that I had is a trace element deficiency?

Neither did I, Lorea - I think I'm just feeling the lack of the old board!

Are they only the old leaves that are yellowing and dropping, or is it all of them? And do you have healthy new shoots?

I'd usually consider this to be normal leaf drop in that evergreens do lose their leaves in spring, but it doesn't look quite right for that.

That's bad news, David - I have some varieties that aren't over until May!

No chance of doing any gardening here all week - wet and windy, and cold.

I have, however, managed to plant a few seeds indoors, so all is not lost

Obelixx, I hope that you heal soon.

I've left mine over the last few years and found that they will last three years before becoming too sad to keep - so I suppose they're strictly a short-lived perennial.

Grey and wet here, too in North Yorks - and supposed to stay like that for the forseeable future.

Oh, well - it's keeping my daffs going longer.
