Care instructions If possible, resist the urge to tidy up straggly or faded leaves in the autumn as a number of insects use these for shelter over winter, and the old leaves also help protect emerging shoots from spring frosts. Remove old leaves in early Spring. If a clump of crocosmia becomes too large or congested, dig up the entire plant in the Spring and divide the plant into smaller sections.
