Any advice on deadheading the Saxifrage arendsii? The flowers are fading, so I don't know if I should just let them die off or snip them.

To Trim, or Not To Trim
by: Jacki

...that is the question.

Depending on how neat and tidy you like your garden, a few senescing flower heads are not a detraction in my eyes. They illustrate the full spectrum of how plants grow, bloom, make seed and die, all in turn.

However, if neatness is important to you, by all means trim off the dead blooms.

Or, wait until they form seed, and collect the seed heads, dry them in a paper bag, and make more plants.

Thank you Jacquie!

I did do some trimming on the Saxifrage a couple weeks ago, and today we decided to move them (have one on either side of the garden) to a bigger space so they can spread a bit better. We also got a couple of the White Pixie variety that I put in the same area, which is at the base of a lilac bush. All things being well, it should look very attractive once all is said and done!
