Deadheading Geum

Morning this the right place to cut when deadheading Geum.

Or, am I better just leaving seed heads on?

    Looks right to me.
    Some Geums won’t re flower, so you only need to dead head if you like being tidy.

    Looks right to me too. I dead head Totally Tangerine, flowers for ages.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    That's how l deadhead mine as well  :)
    Agree with @Busy-Lizzie as regards Totally Tangerine, mine are flowering their heads off. I  did the first deadheading yesterday.

    @punkdoc @Busy-Lizzie @AnniD thanks all... I've seen some of the Totally T in the garden gallery and they look amazing.

    @Sheps That is just how it should be done, go further down the stem and you cut off another  bud which is sometimes very tiny.
