    Rhododendrons and Azaleas

    If your deadheading rhodies be very careful - the new leaves bud just below the flower head, break the stem just below the last flower and not to the base. Me I tend to leave then alone.

    marsh marigold

    Let it do it's own thing, it will die back a bit in the winter anyway. If it's smothering other plants you could tie it up.
