Many people love to grow roses in their gardens but most of them are afraid of pruning. It might seem a difficult job but if you are aware of its basics then pruning won't be an intimidating task for you. In this blog we are going to discuss three easy steps, so you can prune your roses without any difficulty.
Why pruning roses is important?
Before learning how to prune roses we must be aware of it's benefits. Pruning is a process of
trimming and cleaning the plant to make it more productive. We prune roses to remove parts of
the plant that we don't want. This helps in better circulation and growth of the plant. This keeps
the plant healthy and improves the flowering.
Pruning is not as difficult as you think. It might sound daunting but you can excel pruning by doing it more often. Just follow these easy steps and you can easily prune your beautiful rose plant.
There are three major things in the entire process:
In the first place you should remove all extra leaves. This will be helpful for you in seeing the
entire plant without any hindrance. This will also help in removing Pests that might be hiding in
the foliage. After removing the remaining leaves, start cutting the dead branches. Roses
branches are green, if you can see brown branches in your plant, cut them down. This will help
in the better growth of the plant.
We need branches that are going upward so we need to take out branches that are crossing
each other. By taking them out, the plant will grow upward without crossing branches that might
attract Pests and diseases. If you witness any weak growth remove it. So the plant can be
healthier and better.
After pruning the branches we need prune by cutting out ward growing branches in a direction
that will result in the buds growing outward.
After completing the entire process make sure to clean the surrounding and underneath area.
This cleaning will prevent the plant from pests and other little insects.
Roses need fertilizers and nourishment for their perfect growth. If you want them to bloom and
look beautiful, you need to take care of their water and food.
