Do I deadhead these after the blossoms have faded down to the first set of leaf clusters? How often should I feed them and with what to keep them flowering?

Yes, prune off the faded flowers for rebloom. You can prune the flowering stems all the way down to foliage level. New flowering stems will emerge from the crown of the plant. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after your plant has established itself. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. You won't need to feed them this year. Enjoy your beautiful plants.
