I'm in zone 7b. Today is in the 70s. We will be having a cold front come through soon but even that isn't very cold. Highs around 58 and lows in the 40s. I think we will be back up in the 70s after that, with lots of sunshine. My pond is all netted for leaf season. I am inclined to wait a while to cut back my plants. Do you all typically cut back BEFORE the first freeze or wait till after? No matter when I cut things, I know they don't usually go fully dormant for winter. With all the warm spells we have, everything goes to sleep and wakes up multiple times throughout the winter.
