Should I dead head Astrantias when the flowers are "going over". They are in a branch, should the whole branch of flowers be cut back and will they reflower



yes dead head them complete with the 'branch' and they will produce a second flush of flowers. if you leave the later flowers to set seed you will get new plants next year and you may get some nice pink variation in them.

Thank you for your advice, I shall dead head the branch so that I get second flush, and I certainly will leave the last flush to set seed, as I really love these plants.
