How to promote blossoming once blooms turn brown

Zone Northeast coastal North Care luna | SidneyStevenson added on September 9, 2015 | Answered

How do you best promote blossoming once blooms turn brown? I have tried trimming the follicles of the blooms, but I somehow suspect the plant might replace the clusters of follicles more rapidly after pruning away a complete cluster.

I'm not sure of the type of plant that you are referring to, but generally dead heading is good for most plants.
Depending on the type of plant you may or may not encourage more blooming with spent flower trimming.
