How do you care for liriope? They always get winter scorch. Should I cut them to the ground in the fall? What and how often should I feed them? Thank you.

I would wait until new growth in the spring before cutting the plants back. The brown tips will not regrow, so you may want to give it a light trim to remove them, although it is not strictly necessary because the new growth will eventually conceal them. If it is easier to cut the whole plant back (eg with a lawn mower) that will not hurt it. You can feed once in the spring to promote new growth. Enjoy!
