My Geums (Mrs Bradshaw) have flowered wonderfully for months,and are still going. I do deadhead them very regularly and sometimes the new buds are very small indeed, but after a few days produce lovely flowers. I also pull out those stes that are beginning to go brown. I don't water them unless we have had a prolonged spell of hot, rainfree weather (not much of that this year!). I had three new plug plants this year, and they have done quite well, and I expect them to do even better over the next couple of years.
