Deadheading Daisies - Knowledgebase Question

Question by marypankone

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.

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.
