    Default Do you trim dead stuff off plants?

    Calling all green thumbs! I have been entrusted to look after MILs garden and most of it has died! (I think). Should I trim all the brown dead stuff off the plants or leave it? I haven't a clue what I should be doing...
    Does this look salvageable to anyone?

    Umm only when I could be bothered so basically no lol..... But it's the last two weeks of rain that seems to have finished them off

    Probably will buy MIL a bunnings voucher at Xmas to replace some of her plants. I did warn her that I'm no good with plants and that I'd kill them...
