Q.How Do I Deadhead Gerbera Daisy’s And Asiatic Lillies?
I love GERBERA Daisies. Every year I buy at least one or two outstanding plants, and every year they die without every blooming beyond the buds and blooms that attracted me to the plants in the 1st place! It is so depressing to send a flowering plant you love so much to an early grave! This year I am done guessing, please help me save these two!
