En­joy more blooms for longer

Garden Answers (UK) - - Celebrate -

Most peren­ni­als flower for three weeks, some even less. Dead­head­ing can re­vive a plant and en­cour­age re­peat bloom­ing so it’s def­i­nitely worth it. In many cases, if the bloom is not al­lowed to go to seed, the plant will con­tinue to put out new blooms in an at­tempt to com­plete its life cy­cle. When we dead­head, we force the plant to put its en­ergy into new flower and shoot pro­duc­tion.
