I could use some help with my 2 year old Ice Plants. Originally I bought one 6pack, and they have grown to 4ft circles- I have pulled some, cut and rooted some, and given away hundreds of cuttings. They are beautiful. Now- since they are so big, and covered with seed pods, what is the correct thing to do. Should they be cut back severely before freezing, or left alone until it is close to Spring to cut them back? They mostly have a single taproot, although some do make roots away from the starting root. I am thinking I should leave them as they are to sort of insulate the roots over winter-? Any help is appreciated- Thanks- Jo in WA
