What do I do with this plant after it has flowered?

On plant Nigella damascena



Hi Nazlin and welcome to GoY it is an annual so if it has really finished flowering you can simply pull it up. Alternatively you can try cutting off all the dead flower heads and see if will produce more. If you let it seed around where it is planted you'll have new plants next year.

The seed heads are attractive for weeks, too, so I leave mine.

How do I say thanks?
