- The time to prune your hydrangea is just after they are done blooming. Don't wait too long after that or pruning may affect the buds being set for next year's bloom.
- Deadhead your daylilies after blooms are spent or faded. This will encourage the plant to produce a second bloom rather going to seed. Seed pods are identified by the rounded, pecan-shaped balls that form on end of the stalks. Cut the entire stalk off.
