Not every plant needs to be cut back

When it comes to winterizing the garden in the fall, many gardeners often like to grab pruning shears because they want to prune their plants.

Many plants get new shoots in autumn
The pruning of the plants is correct on the one hand, but on the other hand it can be wrong. Because many plants form new shoots in autumn, from which they then turn green and bloom in spring. If you are not sure or should not recognize the young shoots, then keep your fingers away and leave the plant behind.

Plants do not always have to be trimmed
If you keep your hands off the plants, then the flowers have some advantages anyway. First, the plants have a better frost protection, second, they look beautiful in the winter garden and are also an ornament, if the garden does not actually look quite attractive. And thirdly, many plants or their seedbeds serve birds as food. If you prefer to clear up these plants in the spring, then there is still plenty of time left. It is not mandatory that you do this work in the fall.
