Million deadhead or not to deadhead that is the question.

Good evening
i am thinking of changing my baskets this year from my usual surfinia fanfare, to millionbells, purely as they are widely billed as not needing deadheading. Bizarrely though, on jp website , it says they must be. Am now not sure. Any thoughts please?

    I have had million bells (calibrachoa) in baskets for years, and can honestly say that l have never deadheaded them. If they get too straggly, you can pinch them back.
  • Thanks AnniD...millionbells it is then! Fed up with sticky fingers from petunia’s.!

    Dark petunias have a wonderful clovey smell. You need to decide whether sticky fingers are worth it😊
