Pansie Problems
My pansies grew to 8 inches and have bloomed, which are now starting to look scraggly. Can I trim the old blooms off and expect new blooms again this year? If not, can I leave them where they are and will they come back again next year?

Pansies are cool-season annuals. It's normal for them to fade and look scraggly as weather warms  when summer approaches. In cool climates you can often keep them alive through summer months and they'll return with bloom in the fall. However, where summers are long and hot, it's best to remove them when they fade in spring and replace them with more heat-tolerant flowers for summer. When cool weather returns in fall, you can replant pansies for good color in fall and spring.
