Listen to what others are saying about
my rose pruning guide.
got one rose bush and several containers in my front
yard. I used to just let the roses go… no cuts
or pruning in the winter, I thought things would just
be taken care of naturally… and then when spring
and summer rolled around I wondered why my rose bushes
weren’t blooming properly.

spot a rose that needs pruning or "deadheading" and I know how to prune
properly, so now my rose blooms are consistent and healthy.
Paul, from Portland OR.
actually met Harriet at a rose garden where she was
working. While she was pruning roses there I asked her
how she knew what roses needed to be cut. I also told
her I was afraid to prune my rose bush because I thought
I might do something wrong that would damage the rose

Revealing the truth on rose care...
There is a lot of
confusion surrounding our field. I want to give you two criteria
or elements you absolutely, positively must have in any rose
bush care and maintenance solution you obtain:
- You must learn the difference
between pruning a rose and “deadheading”.
And, how these terms apply to different types of roses.
Like I said earlier, all of us need rest and vacation. So
does your rose bush. Knowing what kind of rest to give them –
prune or “deadhead” – is critical to your
success in encouraging healthy rose blooms.
Any rose care guide that gives you pruning tips must show
you the different types of pruning. Truth is many just don’t.
- Any guide that includes
pruning must show you the proper tools and how to care for
Why? Well, any “how to take care of roses” book
should do it. But a lot of them don’t. Maybe they
think it’s so obvious to them that you already know
Also, many rose books give you pages and pages of beautiful
rose photographs but they devote only a few pages to the
care your plants need in order to make them beautiful.
Don’t misunderstand me, rose care photographs are included
here and they’re always nice to look at.
But pages and pages of rose pictures do you no good when
all you want is to learn how to prune roses properly.
much is a healthy rose bloom
worth to you?
it’s about making sure your roses stay healthy
and that good blooms are repeatedly encouraged.
Like you, I have my
own roses that I care for and I feel like I need to care for my friends roses too! Whenever I see roses at my sons house that look like they need deadheading I can't resist, out come the pruning shears and I get snippy!
Also, I’ve volunteered
at public rose gardens where very experienced
gardeners have taught me valuable tips I would like to pass on to you here.
So I’ve discovered
what works and what has a practical chance of working.
I know what doesn’t work when it comes to pruning your

that knowledge with you!
