If yes, how exactly do I deadhead.

Thanks!

  • If they are ever blooming varieties, yes! If they are not, then they still should be dead headed. The Knock-out roses do not have to be dead headed. Cutting off spent blooms for almost any plant is a must, because it keeps the food going to the plant and not to the production of seeds.

  • Find where there are 5 leaves coming out of the stem & cut right below.
