Deadheading means removing spent flowers from any plant.  That makes the plant stop concentrating on making seed to concentrate on making new flowers.  So I was on a job today and needed to deadhead a hedge of about maybe 7 Jerusalem Sage or Phlomis fruticosa plants. You might have seen them before. They have yellow flower spikes. The task looked daunting and I only had 45 minutes left at that job. The first pic is "before" and the second is "after". I spent all 45 minutes on it and didn't get around the corner by the porch steps. Just wanted to share my tedious job for today. I hope you has a good gardening day.
