Where do I cut calandivas after they've finished blooming?
I have a calandiva kalanchoe plant it got a little frosted and blooms have died, where do I cut these plants to ensure a full rebloom?
Kalanchoe plants do not tolerate frost or very low temperatures. Cut off the blooms and any damaged leaves and put the plant in an area where it is well protected from frost. Apply a little liquid fertiliser such as Yates Dynalic Lifter Liquid Concentrate to help the plant recover from the damage. You could also spray the plant with Yates Waterwise DroughtShield, which works like sunscreen to help protect your tree from sunburn or frost. Hope this helps and happy gardening.
