Cast Iron Plant – Renovations

Q: What can I do to make cast iron plant look good. I have two huge beds and they look rough. Could I cut them down completely, fertilize and let them start over?

A: The best time to do a complete renovation is in April. You’ll be able to see new growth then and you can fertilize at the same time. The best you can do right now is to scissor out the brown leaves and let the beds go for winter.
