I recently planted Alyssum in my garden. How do I prune it when the blossoms have faded? When should I fertilize it and how frequently? What kind of fertilizer should I use?

You can simply shear the faded flowers off, cutting the entire plant to the same level. I use scissors to cut my alyssum back. You can feed with a half strength dilution of a water soluable fertilizer (such as Miracle Gro) every 3-4 weeks during the growing season. Enjoy your new plant!
