Deadheading in the garden is a task – a chore – yes, even (gasp) dreaded ‘yard work’…. But this is the time of year that we need to focus, get out there, and ‘deadhead’!!

First, the ‘what’ – deadheading is the art (ok maybe ‘art’ is a bit of a push) of pulling the dead flowers off your flowering plants. We deadhead many annuals but we also should be vigilant about deadheading some perennials, and some re-blooming shrubs.
