Casa Mariposa

I don't cut anything back til the spring. But what a joy it is then, knowing what lies beneath. :o)

I trim my front for the HOA and leave the backyard mostly wild. Many moths and butterflies winter over on these plants. If you leave a one to two foot stem standing native bees will winter over in them.

In my own garden, it's spring before the perennial beds are dealt with.I also leave a lot of the tropical beds so that overwintering larvae will still be there. As for clients gardens, I'm paid to get the job done. The debris is put in piles, and hopefully that helps a little with any living eggs, cocoons, and larvae. I am always one that wants to do as little damage as possible.


Sounds like it was time to put the gardener to bed... hahahahaha
