What do I do with my spirea bushes at this time? After they look like they are done blooming, should I cut them down so as to get them to bloom again? If so, how much should I cut them down?

Once the flowers are spent you can prune your spirea back by about one third. This will encourage new growth and it will bloom for you one more time before fall weather sets in. Enjoy your garden!
