The tallest blooms of some of my larkspur are starting to go to seed, with a few flowers on top of the largest stem.

I am in mind to cut them off. Would this prolong the flowering ?  The plants are quite bushy and the  shorter stems are still in bloom.

They are flowering beautifully and it's the first time I've grown them from seed so looking for a way to prolong the flowers if possible.

Thanks for any advice

Yes, your instinct is right - deadhead your larkspur to prolong blooming and encourage bushy growth.
