Rena Dodge snips blossoms off a hanging basket on Thursday afternoon at Black-eyed Susan’s Greenhouse in Augusta. Dodge said that by snipping or dead-heading the early blossoms, the plants will be bigger and blossom again. She said they’re aiming to have them ready for Mother’s Day, which is the busiest weekend for hanging baskets.
