    When dead-heading petunias, remove the blossom and the small container that holds the blossom, (it is called the receptacle). This receptacle will become a seed pod and will continue to use energy to create seeds.

    Dead-heading in this way ensures the flower spends all of the energy to creating blossoms, not seeds.

    Note:  it is best to use scissors to to dead-head to create a clean cut, which prevents torn stems and discourages diseases.
