    Could not see what you were doing, the plant was too far away and your fingers were in the way,

    Have close point with your snipper and show where you mean. Thank you.

    Posting these in the winter is useful, because it gives gardeners time to plan their garden and space out the planting in the spring, according to when each plant needs to be planted, after the first frost, right before, etc. Posting these in the spring/summer, when most plants would have to be planted already wouldn't really do anyone much good. And there are different climates in the world, where some are hotter than others all year round.

    The most helpful tip I haven't gotten this season. You got a gasp out of me when I saw you cut away…but of course your right. I am always a chicken and cut the least amount possible. Sort of like a chef afraid to use spices. I bow to your gourmet chef to my line cook. lol Thanks for the tip. subscribing now….

    Thanks for posting. I bought a mixed planter that has a petunia as part of it and it loooks a bit ragged, I wasn't sure if I was only suppose to pull the petals out or snap the whole bloom. After watching your video (today is July 1st), I'm going to take your advice and give it a good cutting back.

    So close up of your face wasn't helpful. Why not a close up when your actually cutting.

    I was definitely just pulling the dead flowers off and calling it a day. So now I'll be doing it this way and going to pick up some fertilizer as well. So glad I watched this video!!

    Instead of using toxic chemical fertilizers, you can use crushed egg shells. It works fabulously.
