Cutting back asters fall or spring
I love my aster plants but don't know when to cut them back,,,,in the fall or early spring? I know that i should pinch them in the early summer to produce more flowers in the fall, but don't know when to do the care of the spent plant,fall or spring.

Hi
You can cut last year's dead foliage off your asters in either the spring or fall. It's up to you. I like to leave my plant's foliage on till spring so I can see the plant under the snow, but it really doesn't matter.
