removal of dead blooms
I am a novice gardener-very excited & eager to learn EVERYTHING about gardening. However, I am not sure, when removing dead blooms, where to actually remove them: i.e. with petunias or lantana, would I remove the whole green stalk, or just where the bloom connects to the stem, or the area right below that? This seems so trivial, yet I really want to know how to maximize re-flowering.
