how do i keep the blooms in bloom? DO I water from the top or the bottom? Most blooms only last through maybe the end of June then they are gone. I know the bees love them and drink the sap but when they start looking like UGH I'm ready to cut them back.

You won't be able to make the blooms last longer, as this is controlled by the plant's genetics. You can trim them off once they are spent, to improve the look of the plants.
