Osteospermum - I have two lovely pink plants, the blooms have all died off with no sign of new buds at present. Do I remove the dead heads - just the head, dead petals or the whole stem - or do I just leave it to do its own thing? Help!!!



Pinch or snip off the dead heads. That will encourage the plants to produce new flowers. Give the plants a feed of something like tomato food on a weekly basis, too. That'll boost them.
