In out last blog, in response to a question raised by a local gardener, we discussed some of the things that are typically done incorrectly when pruning roses. I have always been frustrated by those who tell me everything I am doing incorrectly, but then fail to tell me the right thing to do instead. So to that end, we went to the expert: Monty Justice. With our video camera in hand we asked him to show us what he does in his garden each fall to achieve and maintain the championship quality roses he produces from his garden every year.
In this video Monty discusses “Pre-Pruning.” Pre-Pruning helps to give the plant its basic shape for next season, as well as working preventatively to reduce insect and disease pressure next season.
As always, feel free to get in touch with us with any questions you may have regarding Monty’s products, or with your own lawn and garden questions.
