Watch Our Garden Grow: Deadheading

Watch Our Garden Grow

ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – How do you keep your garden looking fresh all season? The answer is simple – deadheading! 

Deading is the horticultural technique where you remove dead flower heads from your plant to encourage further blooming. You can do this by snapping off the dead flower head or cut it off with a tool (scissors or pruners). 

So what flowers need to be deadheaded? Here is a quick list of just some of our top picks.

  • Geraniums
  • Marigolds
  • Petunias
  • Zinnia
  • Cosmos
  • Delphiniums
  • Hollyhocks
  • Snapdragons
  • Roses
  • Bee balms
  • Campanulas
  • Salvia
