Question From: A. Martin - Baldwin, New York, United States
Q: I planted a lovely coreopsis tickseed plant last fall but do not know what spring care is needed. Also I have included photos of my creeping flax, and snow in summer. Do I cut off the browned part or will each rebloom new growth and I should just leave them alone?

Carefully comb out the dead growth if you have time. New growth will cover it. The plant is doing fine. Cut back any dead stalks on the coreopsis. I sprinkle a bit of organic fertilizer on the surface of the soil to give it a boost. Espoma Plant Tone is a good choice. Use a light hand. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
