Shasta daisies beginning to bloom, what do need ...

I planted these from seeds last year, if any of you may remember.   I have re-potted many, and now I'm seeing buds.  Do they need to be deadhead after they bloom, anything else, or just let them be??

I don't know if they need to be deadheaded, but doing so improves their appearance and may lead to a second bloom.

Deadhead to keep your flowerbeds attractive and tidy. OR, let the seedheads drop and multiply if you have the space for additional Shasta daisies. Either way, your daisies will return year after year if the seeds planted were periennials (which it sounds like they are). Clip and enjoy bouquets of fresh flowers inside, too! Daisies are "happy flowers" for any age and are easily shared with family and friends. ENJOY!!

I fully agree and support the other posters - deadheading will definately keep the shastas  blooming AND helps to keep the garden looking neat and tidy!
