Pruning your Roses
by MG Calla Victoris
When you prune your roses it is a good idea to prune deep in one section to make a
hole for yourself, and from there prune around the bush is a clockwise or counter clock-wise manner. This way you are less likely to get snarled up in the thorns.
Always prune just above a leaf formation or a bud. Also if you noticed a hole or crevice in the cane where you cut it, put just a drop of Elmer's glue in the hole, it will seal the crevice and keep insects out or disease from forming in the opening on the rose branch.
