Removing the spent flowers is called Deadheading

Taking off the dead blooms encourages more flowering.

But you need to do it correctly!

Do NOT just cut the flower off.  Then you have ugly spiky stems everywhere.

Find the 'elbow'.  See in the black circle lower in this image.

It breaks with a satisfying snap!  That's why people can't help themselves deadhead geraniums!

When you remove the spent flowers, the plant creates more flowers to create seeds.  It wants to reproduce to survive.

After you deadhead your geranium, give them some diluted fertilizer to help them grow new flowers. Click below to learn more!
