Deadheading refers to the practice of removing faded or spent flowers from plants. When flowers start to wither and die, they often form seed heads.
By removing these spent flowers before they set seeds, you are essentially preventing the plant from putting energy into seed production. Instead, the plant can redirect its energy towards new growth and producing more flowers.
Deadheading also helps to keep the plant looking tidy and encourages a prolonged blooming period. Regular deadheading can promote continuous flowering throughout the growing season, making your garden look more vibrant and attractive.
