As soon as the current blossoms turn brownish I'd cut them back straight across about 3-6" down.  the new buds develop really fast so cut the old blossoms promptly otherwise you have to make a choice between a straight cut where you would loose some of the buds and cutting each stem individually to salvage the new buds.
