Morning all 💋 question.. Does anyone else dead head rose campion? Or should/do you just leave it?

Lovely plant. I do mine but only so I don’t see the crusty petals. Not sure if it encourages more buds or not.

Same here @christophrost I can't see it encouraging new flowers on this type of plant either.. Just don't like seeing lots of dead heads 🙄😊

I always deadhead mine. If you look down the stem from the dead flower, you may see a little notch. A new bud comes from there. If the flowers set seed it flowers less as that’s the plants job done

I deadhead everything as I don't like to see the in between stage as the buds are changing into seedheads.

Doing any type of gardening is therapeutic I think even dead heading @joanboston 😊👍

Yes @joanboston it's seeded all along the border. I gave my sister some so she has it in her garden also. Thank you @gauravsh6 😊

Plants usually only live about three years so it's good to have a constant supply. You can get it in white too, but it's not as robust I find

Here's me thinking perennials would be in my garden forever?! Didn't realise @joanboston

Some do last for many years, but some are more short lived. This is one of them
