Dead Heading

October 16, 2014

As it's summer and our rose bushes are flowering in abundance, we need to dead-head them regularly. This will encourage new flowering shoots as the plants energy would have been lost in forming hips. When the flowers have faded, remove the whole truss, cutting the stem just above the second or third leaf down. Remember to make a clean cut and at a 45 degree angle. If, however, its a first year rose, very little stem should be removed. I hope this will provide you with many more beautiful blooms throughout the remainder of the summer!
