The Q&A Archives: Mature Mums - Cut or pull dead flowers?

Question: Hello,
I have a mature mum, that has flowered a few times. The new flowers are appearing, but the old dead petals are still on the plant and are unsightly. What do I do with the old petals? Do I pull them off? Cut the old stems? Thanks!!!
