Trim off the dead flower heads and wait for next year!

Some pinks will bloom again this year if the deadheading is timely.

They might do in Arizona, but I'm sure that Scottish weather is quite the same...plus there is that ash cloud...

Yeah, sooner or later that's going to foul up even our weather patterns! It usually takes less than six weeks for some pinks (mainly Allwood hybrids) to rebloom here, so I had hopes for their cousins in Scotland.

my pinks have flowered several times after dead-heading them this year and I am in Stranraer Scotland.

When they have ended their flowering altogether, I will cut them down about one third of their growth, and then (as they are in pots) water then only very lightly and keep them out of the harsher weather by garden fleece.
