This is my 3rd season for my Cheddar Pinks which are finally in almost full bloom.
What can I do to get this little bulbs to actually open?
Do I dead head 'em? If so, how far back to I cut and which heads need cutting and which are new bulbs?

I would leave them alone. They'll open in their own time. They look great!

They is no particular need to deadhead but if you choose to, cut the stems off at the base so there aren't unattractive stubs sticking up from the plant mat.

I'm just beginning to love gardening so I'm not that knowledgeable of Cheddar Pinks. They look great, though.

Did an image search on the said flower, the photos just made me smile.

Technology really helps new gardeners such as me. Thanks, Google, Yahoo!, DuckDuckGo, MySearchResults (http://www.scribd.com/mysearchresults)! They're all search engines, btw.

Definitely, nature has its own way of making wonderful things.
