So… milestones….
Um, pruning, dying down? ‘Cutting back’? Is there is a proper horticultural term that should be applied to how we did the best we could to the herbaceous perennials or biennials?
Thanks! x

I would like “cutting back” and “removed” as options, but right now I use pruning.

i call cutting back autumn perennials “pruning”. I also use pruning for mowing the lawn.

Thanks very much for your input, xan and anelson. Pruning does seem the most realistic, as we are manually removing old foliage in order to enable fresh new growth next year. x
