Deadheading and cutting back peonies
Ok, they're just coming up, but I just saw another post that said they should be deadheaded and cut back in fall. Mine are only 3 years old, but I've never done either. They are healthy and beautiful and have tons of buds. I have wondered each year if I should deadhead, cause the spent blooms aren't very attractive, but never got around to the research. I was afraid I would do more harm than good. Is there any benefit to deadheading and cutting back?
