    I have several plants that have sickly looking old growth leaves. These are the leaves from when the plants where first planted. However if you move the leaves to the side there is tons of nice green new growth coming out. Is it safe to cut the old leaves off to give the new growth more light? Some of the plants I don’t know what they are but are broad leaved stem plants and then my vals.

    Yes, it is safe to prune those old leaves. Desirable, even. Cut them off where they join the base of the plant.

    Good luck!
