It’s Time To Prune Your Roses

Share this

According to the Marin Master Gardeners now through mid-February is the ideal time to prune your roses.  Identify which types of roses you have, and decide how you want them to look.  Arm yourself with sturdy gloves and clothes, and make sure your pruning tools are sharp.  Then wait for a mild, dry day to get started. 

To find information in the Marinet libraries on pruning roses try typing the following terms into the search box of the Encore Catalog: Roses, and Pruning.  Watch out for thorns!
