Hi all i am new to ponds and just wondering what to do with the plants that still have alot of green on them do i just leave them until they are dying off and let them do there own thing or do i cut them down regards brian
In gernal I don't think any plant does better by cutting off live green material. Most plants that are adapted to winter have ways to pull nutrients out of the green part and store them in bulbs, roots, etc.
Yep, leave them all to do their own thing, they will die back for the winter when they are ready. The most you would want to do is just remove any dead bits of plants that might fall into the pond and sit there rotting. :o)
