should I dead head this plant or let it die off? Which will get the most flowers? I seem to have a lot of stems with nothing at the end after the first season. lovely show when they were outAsked on 20/8/2013 by buzz from brighton
These plant tend to flower prolifically in early summer and then intermittently - often into autumn if they are deadheaded regularly. The key is to remove each faded flowerhead to the base of the stalk where it branches off the main spike. When all the flowers on the spike have finished flowering, remove the whole stem back to the base.Answered on 21/8/2013 by Helen from Crocus
