Do I deadhead wallflowers? Will they keep flowering? 🤷‍♀️ I know everyone says they just keep going but should I be doing anything to help them? #advice needed, thanks 💜

I take the shears to them once the flowers have mostly gone over. There are always more buds in the crowns ready to take over. Mine flowered right through last winter, never completely without flowers!

If you look down the spent flowers you can normally see a side shoot cut your spent flower to that and it will continue to bloom for you I do that with all mine 😆

Hi, I bought some wallflowers at the weekend to brighten up a corner of the front garden. I haven't had these particular ones before but was inspired to give them a go by many people on GT who rave about them. I'm a bit late to the #bowlesmauve party 😊💜 Have a terrific Tuesday 😃 #wallflower #bowlesmauve #purple #inspired

Thanks Pauline, that's what I like to hear! 😃 I know they're popular for that reason. I bought 5 so if they become too big for the space they're in I can move them elsewhere 💜😊 @flof1952

@anges This will flower almost year round, a real trouper however it can get quite large so maybe put it at the back of a border.
