hi do you deadhead lupins?
hi do you deadhead lupins and how ?
Yes cut off the spike just below the last flower when they fade
Hopefully after you deadhead there will be some more flowerspikes grow up from lower down the stalk - they'll be smaller but still beautiful
Agreed but I do mine as soon as the flower spike begins to go over. It seems a waste when there's colour still there but the secondary spikes respond more quickly and bigger.
so what if all the other flower stems are coming off one main stem do you cut it all to the ground ?
No, just cut below where the faded flowers are.
