Question: how to cut roses to keep them blooming

Answer: Henry,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Prune the spent blooms of your roses off back to the first leaf with 5 leaflets, fertilize them and water it in well to keep them blooming.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
