New to gardening. What does this mean? Does it mean remove the whole top flower piece, just the dead portion or the whole stalk and top?
Pruning: Remove flower spikes as they fade to prolong flowering.

I think you mean deadheading, which constitutes the removal of a faded and spent flower, that sometimes encourages further bloom or in most cases just tidies the plant. If it is a deciduous plant you normally cut it down either in late fall or in Feb. Pruning applies to woody plants, like trees and shrubs. I hope that clears things up.

As far as deadheading your Salivia, remove the entire flower stalk, down to the base (wherever the stalk bottom is).
