I'm pretty new to gardening, and live in the eastern part of Canada. I just planted my first perennial garden late this summer, and I'm not sure what I need to do to winterize the plants. I have monkshood (which just bloomed!!!!!). Do I need to cut them back every year, or leave them? Do they need to be staked?
I also have rhododendron's which I believe need to covered with burlap, but I'd like to confirm that. Thanks for any help you can offer!
