Re: Deadheading flowers?

As flowers age, some can develop seed and hang on and become unsightly. There are flowers that self-clean and do not need deadheading. In these varieties, flowers wilt and fall off. Old varieties of petunia needed deadheading; the newer varieties do not frequently need this. Marigolds are deadheaded; the heavy heads stay on the plant, collect water and turn brown. Impatiens stored in containers often call for some deadheading to keep plants attractive. Deadheading requires simply pulling off the wilted flowers or seed capsules from the plant. For tougher cases, you could use a sharp, clean scissors.
