Composting woody plants over 20 months?

I agree, after shredding you can chuck it all back on the garden

Good for the more woody stems of perennials as well

perhaps yours get better treatment Jo Mine are crispy round the edges/brown in places/horizontal, a sorry state. They go through the shredder well though

The old leaves usually look naff by flowering time and the plant makes new leaves as flowering goes on. Before flowering is best, I was late.

I've tried cutting and not cutting and the former looks best.

Some people  cut the leaves off in autumn, others do it later. Around now works for me most years but this year they're a good 6-8 weeks in advance. It only needs doing once.

I did wonder if removing the leaves will leave the flowers more available to the mutjac but last year they ate the flower buds before I cut the leaves.

The old leaves aren't very pretty are they? I haven't experimented to see if mine grow better following a haircut.
