This is what your Sedums should look like round about now. A herbaceous perennial that’s needs to be tidied up, ready for the spring.
Either you can use secateurs to snip them off at the base or if they are dry enough, you can snap them off at the base. Try not to damage the new green leaf.
Clear away as much of the old dead wood as you can to leave it tidy. This also prevents the possibility of the old flower stems rotting and causing you problems later in the year.
If the head that is left is of any great size you can split it. Sedums are excellent for splitting. Dig it out of the ground trying your best not to damage the roots. RULE OF THUMB – Dig into the ground the radius of the leaf head away from the edge eg if the leaf head is 6″ across, dig 3″ away from the edge. Once its out of the ground, use a spade to cut it in half (or smaller if it is a few years old and bigger). Replant it with some fresh juicy compost and Bobs your uncle – 2 plants for the price of one.
If you want help or tips on anything else in the garden, drop me a note in the comments and I’ll put something together. Nick
