Fortnight Lily (Dietes)
Question from Mari Jon:
Intended to cut back dead leaves from the fortnight lilies. I pulled on some of them, and they came out easily. Is this an acceptable way of getting rid of the dead leaves, or must I cut them back near the base? Seems like I might be freeing up space for new leaves to grow by pulling out the dead ones.
Love your website and all your great knowledge.
