You'll be surprised to learn that modern roses don’t need as much pruning as you think. Follow these steps to ensure your roses🌹 will thrive:
1. 🍃Remove all remaining leaves.
2. 🎋Start with deadwood.
3. Open up the center of the plant.
Take out crossing branches which can rub, causing damage and encouraging disease. The goal is to have upward-reaching branches with an open structure in a vase-like shape.
4. Remove any thin, weak growth.
5. Prune the remaining canes. (a small bump found where a leaf would meet the stem).
6. Seal fresh cuts.
7. Clean up.
After pruning, make sure to clean up the surrounding area underneath.
8. Feed your roses.
Roses are “big eaters” and need proper nutrition, so feed them with a long-lasting fertilizer
