Aster novi-belgii 'Bahamas'

I already did all this before planting. The plant is at the front of 1 of my raised beds which isnt getting much sun now but gets plenty in the Spring and Summer

They should be fine in an unheated greenhouse over Winter though I'm not 100% certain.

Someone else may well be able to clarify this.

It has finished flowering. Just a couple of flowers left that look a bit tatty

I've never grown them either so I have no idea how large they get :P

I'm sure someone else will come along that knows better than I do :P

The ferns are completely hardy. They die back in Winter and re-emmerge in spring

I only planted it this year and it was terribly rootbound when I got it out of the pot. I guess it must have dried out quite a bit at the garden centre in that tiny pot 

It's in a nice sunny spot now with moist soil so I guess it should be fine. Should I cut it down now to to minimize the risk of it re-appearing next year?

Hi all I have one of these in my garden and it has developed a horrible mildew.

What can I do with it now to help stop this coming on the plant next year?

Many thanks
