If you’re like most folks the big freeze probably set your gardening plans back just a bit. While we’d recommend waiting another week or two to start the removal of dead and frozen growth, it is still perfect time to prune your roses and deciduous fruit trees and vines. Mid January till mid February is a great time to clean up old growth and thin out un productive branches. Roses produce on new growth so pruning ahead of the spring flush will insure lots of new growth and big beautiful blooms. The same is true for deciduous fruit trees and vines.
We’ve done a short video on the basics of pruning a rose bush. We hope that it will take some of the fear and trepidation out of it- it really isn’t that hard or complicated. Click on the photo to watch.
