|I've just removed the dead wood, but the ones in my yard don't do so well. They really don't like my alkaline soil. |
I've just heard that they don't like any kind of spraying. Somebody in our local rose society sprayed theirs with Miracle Grow and it died back.

|The other website says prune hard in spring to 16 inches.|
I'm fine with that.

|THat's right on the no spraying. No feeding, no spraying, just leave them alone. I also think any pruning should be done very very early in the spring. Like about the time a hungry bear would be browsing. |
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.
