Hello. Thanks for reading this.
When deadheading, is it best to remove the spent flowers or let them stay on the ground as mulch?
Thanks again. Stay healthy.

When I deadhead flowers I just leave them one the ground in the beds. Last year it was primarily Monarda and salvias.
When I dead head rhododendron I generally picked, or raked them up. That represented a lot of debris and it just looked tidier if I cleaned them up. Those did not break down quite so quickly.
