knockout rose bush blooms
I have a knockout rose bush. The roses have bloomed and have now died out. Do I pinch off the dead roses?

Knockout roses are some of the new age of self cleaning roses which means you do not have to deadhead them to get new buds and blooms to come on. If you do pinch off the dead blooms, do so very close to the bottom of the spent bloom so as not to take a chance on pinching out the area where the new buds will form.
