Sweet Williams

I have had a wonderful display this year but I don't know what to do with them now they are finishing flowering. Are they going to be any good next year or should I hoof them all out and start again?? Never grown them before. Thanks, Lizzie

I would allow them to self seed, wait till they die back, cut them down, to about 3" tall, leave them where they are, unless you want to re-positionn them for next season. If so wait till Autumn or there abouts..

Pity you didn't take a pic when they were in full bloom...come on what have we all missed? That's the beauty of flower gardening ...sharing..    

Pleased they did so well for you....
