Julie adds,
I wish I had read this message last October.  I did cut off the bloomstalks
of my rebloomers, and I thought they would be safe from rot. But I didn't
disinfect them, and obviously I didn't watch them closely enough, because I
did get some rot.  We had a lot of rain in Nov., which probaably didn't
help.  But next year I will cut off rebloom stalks AND disinfect them AND
really watch them carefully. Thanks for the good advice.
