Cut back crocosmia?

I would cut it back to let the new growth come up freshly as it would in a hard winter when the old leaves die.

My car is a girl, well she has to be with a name like Megane. She's red, best car I've ever had. I'm still furious with OH when he forget to shut the back door and reversed out of the garage some time ago. The only dents on her are his doing. She gives me freedom.

We are watching rugby, England/France in French. French SIL is not a happy bunny at the moment, unless something happened while I was typing this. Daughter is asleep on the sofa.

I wanted to know the answer to this too. I had an asparagus plot and it got over run with bindwind that I couldn't dig out because of the asparagus roots. Gave up in the end. But the asparagus was better than any I'd bought.
