How do you deadhead a flower?
Deadheading flowers is very simple. As plants fade out of bloom, pinch or cut off the flower stem below the spent flower and just above the first set of full, healthy leaves. Repeat with all the dead flowers on the plant. Sometimes it may be easier to deadhead plants by shearing them back entirely. via
How do you know when to deadhead flowers?
You can deadhead flowers any time they begin to fade. This is easy to see in single flowers on single stems. Plants with multiple blooms on a stem, such as delphinium, begonias and salvia, should be deadheaded once 70 percent of the blooms have faded. via

Do you cut the dead heads off hydrangeas?
Most hydrangeas are pruned in spring, their flower heads having been left on over winter to protect the buds beneath. Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea aborescens can be cut back harder. If you're not sure which type of hydrangea you have, it's best just to deadhead it and observe how it grows. via
Should I remove dead flowers from hydrangea?

Does deadheading roses produce more flowers?

Should I deadhead lavender?
Lavender requires a soil pH of 6.5 to 8. Position the lavender plants with plenty of space between them to encourage drying air circulation. Remove, or deadhead, spent blooms regularly for the entire blooming season. This prolongs the overall blooming duration and promotes bushier growth. via
Do you have to deadhead petunias?
You should deadhead petunias because it encourages them to bloom more vigorously. After the blossoms become brown and dried up, the plant uses its energy to produce seeds. When you remove the dead blooms and seed pods, the plant will be able to use that energy to produce more flowers instead. via

Most flowers lose their attraction as they fade, spoiling the overall appearance of beds, borders and containers, and are best removed. Regular deadheading directs energy into stronger growth and more flowers. via
What is the difference between deadheading and pruning?
General Pruning-Deadheading Tips. (Note: "deadheading" means to remove the spent blossoms from plants, while pruning refers to removing any part of the plant, from large to small - what we're doing in summer is small, just cutting back some and trimming.) via

Do you cut the dead heads off roses?
Deadheading is the removal of finished blooms in order to encourage further blooms and improve the appearance and shape of the rose.

How do you get roses to bloom all summer?
What happens if you don't prune your hydrangeas?
Hydrangeas that bloom on old wood do not need pruning and are better off for it. If you leave them alone, they'll bloom more profusely the next season. Just remember new growth may come, but that new growth will be without blooms next season. via
What month do you prune hydrangeas?
Autumn is the time to 'dead head' or prune off spent flowers. Winter is the main period of pruning (wait until frosts have gone in cooler zones though). Losing their leaves for us makes it easy to see what we're doing! via
Will hydrangeas grow back if cut down?
You can take a more relaxed attitude about pruning if you have hydrangeas that set flower buds on current season wood, like panicle and smooth hydrangeas. Even if you cut canes back to ground level during dormancy, the shrubs will grow back and produce blooms in spring. via

A good flower to dry for indoor arrangements is the hydrangea. One method of preparing hydrangeas is simply to air dry them.

If it blooms on old wood (stems from the summer before the current one), its buds are being formed, and if you wait too late you may cut them off, meaning no flowers next spring. So these shrubs should be pruned immediately after their flowers fade. They bloom in early summer on old wood, so prune them after flowering. via
Which petunias do not need deadheading?

In the autumn, once damaged by frosts, bedding petunias are best dug up and composted. via
How do you trim stock flowers?
Where do you cut roses when deadheading?
