Hi, do I need to take these stems/seed heads off my heuchera now? 
Thanks!

  • Yes, if the flowers are finished the stems can be removed.

    It should reward you with more. I did mine a month again I have more now than I did then

    The bees love the flowers on mine even though they are so small.

    When they are flowering or just over and turning to seed, they are great in flower arrangements.

    @TheGreenMan how many times would you cut off? Should you leave if have second bloom? Thanks

    Some of mine were still flowering until we had the snow in February so I tend to base it on how they’re doing. If you see new ones poking up then chop off the spent ones.

    This one is onto its third lot so far this summer.


    The bees love it.

    I usually only get one flowering and grow them for the foliage.

    @TheGreenMan beautiful photo of a beautiful plant! And three? Wow! 🤩 Can I ask how often you would give them plant feed? When? Particular type? I’ve not really given any of my plants much since I planted them 😬
