Deadhead your flowers

Don’t forget to deadhead in your garden!  Deadheading just means snipping off the spent flowers on your plants.  Many annuals and perennials benefit from doing this small chore.  By deadheading certain varieties, you can prolong the bloom time or even get a second flowering, depending on the plant.  It will also prevent reseeding with some plants.  Here’s a list of some common varieties that will benefit from snipping off the spent flowers or stems: 

Balloon flower

Columbine

Cosmos

Coral bells

Daylily

Foxglove 

Geranium

Lavender 

Marigold

Purple coneflower

Shasta daisy 

Speedwell

Zinnias

Also, don't forget your roses.  Deadheading roses is important because it promotes new growth, and therefore more blooms.  Just snip off the spent blooms, below the first or second leaf formation.
