Do I deadhead Grape Hyacinths?


By Ladyb

I was wondering if someone could advise on what I need to do to my Grape Hyacinths.

Do I deadhead them as they have now finished flowering, do I leave them to die down naturally, or do I cut everything including the green leaves?

I do want them to flower every year so don't want to kill them.

Thanking you in advance



If you don't want them seeding everywhere you remove the seedheads but leave the leaves to die down naturally.

I have a few clumps but want some more so I am going to let everything die down naturally . Some gardeners find them a nuisance because they seed so much but that doesn't seem to happen to me.
