Gardeners' Notes:

I love to garden but I'm far from an expert. I have searched many garden sites and they all have great information, but they never tell when to remove the plant when it's finished flowering. For example when is it safe to remove the stems of an asiatic lily when can you cut back shasta daisies. Can you cut back oriental grass in the fall if you don't want it all winter. These are very helpful things to know but I never see them in with the flower info. I would appreciate knowing these things. Any help would be appreciate any help
