        I'd leave them until Spring. It protects any delicate growth and still looks good through the winter.

        Some of ours still have flowers on them :scratch: but we shall cut the top growth off as they're beginning to flop all over the place. We'll cut them back late March to early April - if we get around to it in time :doh:
