The Q&A Archives: Deadheading Daisies

Question: I have a beautiful Nairobi daisy in my container garden this year. How should I remove the spent flower heads? Do I just pluck it off at the top? Should I remove the whole stem that flower was on? Or something else? Please help!! Thanks.

Answer: When deadheading, you should remove the flower, stalk, and even some of the foliage. Your daisy will develop new flowering stalks and new foliage as the season progresses.
