What is deadheading and is it necessary?

Deadheading is the process of removing faded flowers from a plant to encourage more blooms and more robust plants. It isn’t absolutely necessary, but if you allow plants to form seeds, their energy will focus primarily on that process. If the plant produces berries or fruit after flowering, you certainly would not want to deadhead it.
