The Q&A Archives: Pruning Snapdragens

Question: I planted snapdragens last year and they have flower and some are dieing off. I need to know how to cut them back and what care they need to keep them in good health.

Answer: Snapdragons are usually considered annuals but in your warm winter gardening region, snapdragons can live over the winter months and flower again the following spring. I simply cut off all the old stems in the early spring and the roots produce new flowering stems. Your snapdragons may do the same - simply clip all the old stems down to ground level. Best wishes with your snaps!
