I do love Dove's imagination.  It's making even me believe I have a log cabin here

Cutting down perennials for a second crop of flowers

Currently I have a blue amd a nice white with several spikes....

If cut down early when first flowers are beginning to fade, and the same done to second flush a third often occurs in September.  If our summer carries on like this I will be expecting just that.

Can Cordylines be split?

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 19:17

Yep, splitting probably threw a confusion Imto the mix there.  Grow cordylines and Phormiums .

Kathy dicentras so tend to die down either totally or partially in the summer.  Cutting back would not have made a great difference.  Just mark where your dicentras are though
