As long as you have a frost-free few days, it should work well though your local season may mean the window for pruning, which here in the UK is January, February and, in a late spring, March. As long as it is completed before the plants put too much energy into new growth that you are going to effectively waste by cutting this spent energy out. There are lots of notes in my blog on rose pruning for shrubs, hybrid teas, cluster-flowered roses, climbers and ramblers. There are several ways of searching for articles too though using the search box on the left hand side for rose pruning might be the best start. Best wishes, Martin Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
