Watching a few weeks back Monty Donn mentioned about cutting back Buddelia and Cosmos to give more energy to plants so they would flower again and keep the bees happy.
Then watching Carol from the same programme (sorry forgot her surname) she mentioned leaving plants to die off naturally so the seeds would fall and be food for the birds in the wintering months.
Im confused. I want to provide a store cupboard for the insect world but am left somewhat bewildered at what to chop and what to leave alone.
