Spring Rose pruning tips
Late April into May is the time to prune your roses. We’ll still get some temperature fluctuations but now's the time to inspect your roses to see how they fared through the winter and to get them ready for the new season.Start by gathering your tools. You'll need garden scissors, a good pair of bypass pruners, a set of loppers for large canes and sturdy gloves.
Next, remove the rose collar from the base of the rose and start pulling back the mulch. It’s best to remove mulch gradually over the course of several days. This will allow the rose to adjust to the change in soil temperature.
