Cutting back Salvia
    #910209 - 09/26/02 05:48 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I was thinking about cutting back my Salvia plants.
they caught whitefly a while back, they survived but now are bare of leaves for the first 3-4 feet off the ground.
Do you think, if i cut them right back, low to the base of the main stem, they would sprout new branches even if there wasn't any leaves on the plant?

Annoying!! Tell me about it...i first noticed that my plants were infected when i was admiring a huge harvest of extremely fine (enormous) leaves and i saw that fuckin tons of little flies had hatched since the leaves were dried (they were even more obvous because the leaves were dry) and they were covered in eggs :frown:
Had to bin the lot and then battle like fuck against the wee cunts to save my babbies. They've been in remmission ( :smile: ) for almost a year now so the story had a happy ending :laugh:

I'm not keen on massacaring my plants but i think they will end up looking a bit better than the semi-sorry state the infestation left them in, and i know of good homes the cuttings could go to :smile:

I'm not sure what time of year would be best to cut them right back, whether i should do it now (when they might not stand the stress so well?) or wait till spring (although they are quite big - maybe 4-5 feet tall - so they might die down anyway over winter...) any opinions?
