When to mulch perennials?

Posted: 04/09/2015 at 08:11

Hi guys, 

In our school garden we have a variety of perennials such as Nepeta, Salvia, Agastache etc and I was wondering when to cut them back and mulch them? Also can anyone advise what mulch is best to use, please?

Hi guys,

Can anyone recommend when I should cut back (marsh marigold) caltha palustris and (bog arum) calla palustris in my school pond?

Thanks guys.

That'll teach me for not buying seeds from a reputable source 

Was really looking forward to planting them in the school wildlife garden!

There does seem to be a spherical flowering head starting on them.
