Hi everyone. This is my first post on here.....so here goes! I live in the cold damp north and followed some advice recently to keep the leaves on the red hot poker through the winter to protect the crown. It has worked beautifully but now I have been left with a huge mound of ugly dying leaves which seems to have outgrown everything else. Can anyone suggest how I can manage this now that spring is finally appearing? Thank you everyone.
