Q.How to deadhead Shasta Daisies – Becky

Zone Indianapolis | Anonymous added on June 18, 2019 | Answered

I’m a very novice gardener (that may even be stretching my qualifications). I planted a bunch of Shasta Daisies, the Becky variety. I would like the flowers to spread and really overtake the garden they are in. I’ve been reading about deadheading the flowers, but everything I’ve found has been pointed towards flowers that have more than one flower per stem. The Becky variety only had one. I’m wondering how far back I should cut the flowers. To the ground? Near the head? Somewhere in the middle? Thanks for any help you can give!

You will want to cut the flower closer to where the leaves begin. This will help them to bloom again before bloom season is over. This article will give you more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/shasta-daisy/deadheading-shasta-daisies.htm
