I'm s'posed to be cutting things back, but I can't bring myself to chop the salvia back when it's flowering so prettily! Cuttings taken though 💜

What do you normally do with yours Keely? Do you just cut it back and leave it? 🤔 @Keely

I'm leaving mine too! Still flowering in earnest. I cut mine back and as there in pots I pop them in a cold frame type shelter with a layer of shingle on top for extra protection. @rachelbrooks 😁

Ah ok, thanks Lynda. This one is in the ground so I guess I'll just have to mulch it like Keely says and hope for the best (and that my cuttings take!) @LyndaClack @Keely

Mulched mine last year and it is actually in quite soggy ground where it is and it came back this year have got one in a pot and 2 others in garden too so hoping at least one will survive can do cuttings too I have a baby one in summerhouse just in case they show quite late so you may think you have lost them then all of a sudden they start to show again 😃 leave mine to die down naturally and tidy up later 😆

Thanks girls 👍🏼 @LyndaClack We don't normally have too harsh winters 😬 @Keely and that sounds promising Keely! I'll also have to try to remember that it might be a bit late! 🙄😂
