Your 3 Easy Steps to Deadhead Your Zinnias

Zinnias are one of jewels of our garden and, if you are like us, you want to make sure your Zinnias are living their best garden life.

One way to ensure this is to keep your Zinnia plants flowering and free from diseases and pests, which includes cleaning out old, withered, dead flowers.


Deadheading is as easy as 1, 2, and 3:

  1. Locate your old withered, browning flower.

  2. Follow it’s flower stem down to where the stem branches off to another flower stem.

  3. Using our hand pruners or micro-snips, make a cut on the stem of the old withered flower just above where that stem and the new stem intersect or are connected.

Bonus step: Be sure to remove and discard that old flower so your zinnias and other plants have a nice, clean garden environment to keep growing for their best lives.
