Rose Pruning

A small group of us had a master class in rose pruning from Angela Morley on this chilly Saturday morning.

Key points

  • Remove the dead / diseased / damaged wood
  • Start at the bottom of the plant and thin out oldest shoots to create an open framework of branches
  • Then trim back shoots by approximately 1/3
  • Cut to an outward facing bud leaving a stump no more than 5mm (1/4″)
