Extend Your Bloom With Deadheading Cumming, GA
seasonal flowers

In landscaping terms, deadheading refers to the removal of spent flowers on a plant to promote more flowering throughout the season, and even into the next season. As we approach the middle of summer, this is a key time to look for opportunities to deadhead your flowers. If not, you may find that some of your flowering plants you had planned to enjoy all summer are starting to lose their vigor and color prematurely. Here are some deadheading tips to follow so that you can extend the blooming season of your perennials.

By removing the flower heads, you are channeling the plant’s energy into a more optimal direction, which is away from seed production and towards more flower production. In other words, you are tricking the plant into forming new flowers by deadheading it before it produces the seed. Some flowers may require shears while other plants need only your hands to pinch off the spent flowers. A professional landscaper can educate you on the proper technique of deadheading based on your type of plant.

Not only will you enjoy future bloom and growth from your current plants by deadheading them, but it also results in an immediate aesthetic improvement as well. Removing unsightly, shriveled flowers from the plant bed makes for a much cleaner, vibrant landscape.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
