Gunnera manicata - maintenance. (No replies)
I live in the north east of England and am going to try and grow the above plant in the garden.
I have read on a few sites that the leaves need to be cut back and the crown covered with straw mulch.
My questions are: - Do I cut all the leaves off? Do I pile the mulch over the whole crown? How thick should the mulch be?
Thank you for any help you can give me with this.
