Flower Production Blooms are produced from May until August/September. Keep cutting to encourage more flowers. Once flowering is over cut the plants back and mulch around them with organic matter to feed them ready for next year. Divide the plants once every 3 years.
Picking Cut flowers regularly and dead-head to make sure that your plants continue to produce new blooms. When cutting place the cut flowers into a tall bucket of clean water. Allow to rest overnight before arranging. Lasts at least 7 days as a cut flower. (Don't use too many in one vase as their scent can be overpowering!)
