Cutting down perennials for a second crop of flowers

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 22:39

Indeedy.........bet it won't happen now .  I have this thinking that if flowers are removed just as they start to fade the plant will feel it hasn't flowered and flower again v quickly

No Bekkie.  Can't do that.  Not all of it.  Only if you insist though!

Currently I have a blue amd a nice white with several spikes....

If cut down early when first flowers are beginning to fade, and the same done to second flush a third often occurs in September.  If our summer carries on like this I will be expecting just that.
