Deadheading how-to

The simple secret that will make deadheading a snap!

Deadheading how-to

Put off deadheading your lungwort (Pulmonaria hybrids) and you’ll be stuck tediously snipping around new foliage growth.

Instead, it’s much easier to clip spent blooms right when lungwort is done flowering. Grab a handful of stems and cut them off as close to the base of the plant as possible, just like we did here. Don’t forget the gloves if its prickly foliage bothers you!
