ok, everything is pretty much burned to a crisp here in middle tennessee. i dont even water any of my flower garden except my hydrangeas. so, my question is....should i go ahead and whack everything back to the ground now, so maybe the plants will save it's energy and wont completely die?

please, what do i do?

It's going to depend on what you have?

Bulbs if they are completely brown can be trimmed back to the ground. The rest we'll need to know what they are.

perennials....coneflowers, black-eyed susans, daisy, tall phlox, geramiums, silver lace vine.....those are the ones that are the worst.

I think your going to be fine with all of those. Geramiums and silver lace may not do real well. But then those aren't two that I have much luck with anyway. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
