Here is a great guide for deadheading I found from Garden Gate magazine. I have subscribed to them for years and I love how much they help with flowers. This is a pdf file to download if you are interested. -- Deadheading Guide
Deadheading today and what tomorrow? I need to start on my garden enclosure, that's what.
