The Q&A Archives: Baby's Breath

Question: We have a huge,lovely pink Baby's Breath that is 3'wide by 2'high. We're having a garden event at end of July. The Baby's Breath is peaking now. Can I clip this back and have it rebloom? If so, how far?
Thanks Bunches(of flowers.)

Answer: Baby's Breath won't rebloom in time for your garden event, but will rebloom in 4-6 after being cut back. If they're at their peak, I'd harvest the flowering stems, hang them upside down to dry, then place the dried flowers in decorative buckets around the garden for guests to admire.
