Salvia - Mojave

Hi Guys,

Your advice please.

The Salvia - Mojave I sowed from seed has already started flowering and I haven't planted them out as its a bit early with the weather as it is at the moment. Below is an image of one of two trays worth I thought I would try this year.

My question to you.
Is this the type of plant where you would pinch out the flowers at this early stage to promote stronger green growth for better flowering later in the summer?




Many Thanks for your help and advice

Kili

    Yes I think I would pick the flowers out, if not they’ll go to seed and the plant will be finished. 
    If you made a note of when you sowed the  seeds, you can try later next year.  It’s all about learning what works best,
