    Depends on where your at. I usually wait until frost hits once then trim back to about 6 inches. If you are in the Northern part of the country you have gotten considerably cooler and may even have had frost so now would be a good time. Note though that according to Knockout tag they prefer trimming in the spring. Don't know why but it has worked for me so far.
  • You can trim them now to keep tidy looking, pruning is done in late winter to early spring.
