DEAD-HEAD PERENNIAL FLOW­ERS

Matamata Chronicle - - Gardening -

Trim­ming off spent flow­ers neat­ens up daisies, dahlias, os­teosper­mums, wall­flow­ers, pen­ste­mons and other peren­ni­als that are look­ing tired. You will of­ten get an­other flush of flow­ers. Leave alone those you want to save for seed or those seed­heads that look at­trac­tive in their old age such as pop­pies, nigella, se­dums, hon­esty, teasels and grasses.
