If you want continuous and long lasting blooms in your garden there is one simple thing you need to do: Cut the flower stem before it goes to seed. When a plant hasn't produced its seed it will try again and will keep trying until the job is done. So cut blooms that are fading away or a few new ones for the kitchen table. In the end it makes for a prettier and long blooming garden.
