Question From: G. McKee - Charlottesville, Virginia, United States
Q: I find two conflicting answers about deadheading Shasta daisies. 1: clip back to the next growth on the stem, or, 2: clip all the way back to the base of the plant. Which is correct?
This early in the season the plants should produce more flowers, so clip the stems back to where there is a leaf axil. Later in the season when the plants have bloomed out cut the stems back to the basal growth. Take a peek at the plant every few days to see where, when and how new growth emerges.
