Should I deadhead spent flowers off Lady's Mantle and Astilbes? Also, should I fertilize them throughout the summer?
Thanks!

Yes, cut off the dead flowers, along with the flowering stems. You can feed once in the spring with a time release fertilizer or you can feed every 6 weeks with a liquid fertilizer. Best wishes with your garden!
