4th of July....you know what that means
The 4th of July has come and gone, and do you know what that means? It means it's time to cut your asters in half. By cutting your asters in half you will not have floppy plants in fall. Instead the plants will stand upright without staking. Last year I tried an experiment on my helenium, since sometimes they get to tall for their own good. I cut part of the plant in half and left the other half. Both parts of the plant bloomed, so if you feel your heleniums get to tall now would be the time to cut them also.
