I could use some advice as to what to do next with my alpines. As you can see form the photos they are looking a bit tatty now. The saxifrage and sea thrift could possibly do with some heavy pruning.
I was thinking of taking a scissors to them and cutting them back so that they no longer obscure the stones. When would be the best time to do this, Autumn, Winter or Spring?
Also, my houseleeks have produced lots of lovely little offsets. Some are growing over the stones, attached to the parent plant by long stalks. Do I just snip the stalks and pot the offsets up?
If you can offer any advice I would be very grateful. So far I've found my alpine rockery very rewarding and low maintenance. I just need to ensure I can keep it looking presentable going forward.
