The Q&A Archives: Dead head Snapdragons

Question: When I pull the bloom off a sd there is a little ball left. What do I do with it, or does it come off too?

Answer: To keep your snapdragons blooming you will want to remove the spent flowers including the little seed pods. If you leave the pods on the plant they will develop into seeds, which will signal the plant to stop flowering. So snap those pods off, too. When the last few flowers on the stalk are blooming you can allow them to develop seeds which you can collect and plant in your garden. Enjoy your snapdragons.
