Red hot pokers- dead heading confusion

Colo_hColo_h Posts: 15

I have some lovely red hot pokers reaching the end of their bloom and have read conflicting articles regarding dead heading to get reblooms this summer.

Some say they won't bloom again until next year and to leave alone, some say to dead head where the end of the flower is and others say deadhead right at the base of the plant.

Does anyone know what is correct?

Thank you

    Probably any would be fine, try them all out on different plants assuming you have more than 1!
  • I always dead head mine and sometimes get a few more flowers but not many. No idea if that's the right thing to do though!
