The Q&A Archives: How do I care for Snapdragons?

Question: Do I cut off the stems after its done blooming? How do I control the stems from tipping over? Why does the leaves at the bottom turn yellow and there are certain places where the leaves have holes?

Answer: To promote additional bloom, cut the entire flowering stem off the plant. You may have to stake the taller varieties of snapdragons to keep them upright. Pull off any yellowing leaves and new leaves will grow. If you do not see insects on the foliage, it's hard to know what they are and how to control them. Since only a few leaves have holes in them, I don't think the insects will do much harm to the plants.

Enjoy your snapdragons!
