Pruning Roses

Pruning Roses

 
Bedding roses such as hybrid tea and floribundas get hard pruned in late winter/early spring.

 

  • Cut the stems back to one or two buds always choosing and outward facing bud.
  • This keeps the centre of the plant open so you end up with a plant that is wine glass shaped.
  • Keeping the centre of the plant open helps air to circulate through the plant to help keep away those fungus diseases.
  • Always remove any pruning and leaves from your bed after pruning as this will take away any old diseased leaves and help stop spread of diseases.
