Cutting Scapes to get more leaves?
Frank said that cutting off scapes will produce more leaves. Ken said that the plant doesn't put out anymore leaves after it blooms, but goes to building roots for next year.
So, right now, my old sieboldiana, Orange Marmalade, Frances Williams and Pizzazz are putting up scapes. Does that mean they are through growing for the year? If I cut off the scapes, will I get more leaf production? Is that why sieboldiana types are slow growers? They bloom early?
Inquiring minds want to know.
