The Q&A Archives: when do I prune

Question: when and how do I prune my rose bushes, and create myertles

Answer: Darlene,

Late winter is the best time to prune. You can remove spent bloom heads from crapes in the summer if you like. Roses do well with a late summer shearing, fertilizing and watering to bring on new growth and a better fall bloom show.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
