when should i cut back my rose bushes?
I live in the desert of Palm springs, CA and I have rose bushes all around my house. When should I cut them back and what is the the best way to do that?
I am attaching a couple of articles I wrote on this subject for you to check out the links:
If your rosebushes have bloomed and the blooms are done, it is time to dead head them (removal of the old spent blooms). See the article for tips on that.
If your roses are waking up from a semi dormant rest state, see the pruning article for tips. If you have further questions please feel free to ask once you have read the articles.
