How To Prune Salvia For Endless Blooms All Summer

0 6

As Steph from the YouTube channel Hooked and Rooted accidentally discovered, the best time to prune back parts of your salvia plant to ensure constant blooms is when the bloom stalks are a little over half spent. At this point the flowers lower on the stalks will have stopped blooming, but those higher up on the same stalk will still be bright, colorful, and covered in pollinators. This is the perfect time to cut back the blooms on about half the plant. Which section of the plant you cut back is entirely up to you and what looks best in your garden, though cutting either the front or back will probably be the most attractive options.

Once you’ve decided which section of your salvia to prune, simply use sharp pruning shears to remove the bloom stalks and cut back to the foliage. Within a few weeks that section of the plant will have flushed back out and begun to flower again. These flowers should appear just in time for the other half of your salvia to get a trim.
