Mid-Spring: Mulch plants after soil has warmed, keeping mulch away from the crowns to discourage rot.
Late Spring: Watch for slug damage and use preventative measures if slugs are active.
Summer: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming, unless you want to collect seed.
Fall: Cut foliage back to soil level. For new plants, provide a winter mulch of evergreen boughs or salt marsh hay after the ground freezes to help prevent heaving.
