crepe mrytle trees
Have two new (1 yr old) crepes. One has a beautiful bloom. I clipped dead seeds and it rebloomed again. Fabulous. Question is, should I leave on tree at the end of winter or let them go for another year? Want to see another great season.

I would not trim the tree again at this time due to the fact that this could cause it to stop going into its dormant state, which protects it from the cold. But keep doing the deadheading as you did this year after the first flush. It is a great way to get a longer blooming season.
