Winter is an important time for doing major clean-ups and rose pruning. Roses should be correctly pruned at least once a year – the best time is mid-July to mid-August.
Why does one prune roses?
To encourage rejuvenation
To shape the tree so that it allows the sunlight into the centre of the tree
To boost the immune system of the tree
To regulate bud production and to increase the size of the flowers.
