Answer: Mugho pines may be pruned in the spring when the new shoots, which look like candles, develop. When the "candle" has extended almost to its full length, but before the needles are fully developed, remove about half the length of the "candle". This will promote compactness of the plant. This method may be used on other pines as well. Green foliage must remain on any branches that are cut back. They seldom are able to develop new growth from bare stubs so make your pruning cuts carefully.
You can cut the flowering stem on your daylilies down to foliage when you are sure they have finished producing flowers.
Delphiniums will grow in full to part sun, in rich, moist soil. They won't need to be fertilized, but a topdressing of organic mulch will help keep the soil moist and will leach nutrients into the soil as it decomposes. Delphinium is considered a biennial or sometimes a perennial in your gardening zone. It depends upon the cultivar you are growing.
