Why It Is Absolutely Vital That You Prune Your Roses

Aug 17, 2007
In this jet age we live in, most of us find it very difficult to get time to prune the roses and very often we skip the process. We do not realize the consequences of avoiding the process. Here are a few points explaining the importance of the practice.

Pruning helps stimulate growth of the rose. There is no hard and fast rule regarding the time of pruning roses. As long as the roses are kept out to receive sunlight is all that matters. Sunlight infuses energy in the plant, and provides the nutrients they need through summer, which are missing. Air moving through the plant helps the plant to bloom and grow successfully.

Pruning protects the plant from diseases and wintering bugs. The rose plant is a common place for bugs and diseases to hide from the cold winter and also helps remove the bugs and the dead wood and decay that are caused by them. The growth of the rose plant is often curbed by the decays of the bugs, which leads to destruction of the plant. With the help of pruning the disease is removed thus helping the plant grow in a healthy environment.

Pruning guarantees excellent quality and quantity of roses. Pruning helps make the thin and weak stems of the rose plant stronger, prevents decay and revitalizes them. Even if the process isn't done professionally, it helps the plant grow, get stronger and increase the quality of the flowers.

Pruning is a very easy process that can be done effortlessly at home. All you need is a pair of pruning scissors and gloves to protect your hands. You need to find the perfect time to prune your rose. Different varieties of roses have different times to prune. Usually the time before spring is the best for cutting.

You should also give a lot of importance to the way you cut each rose. If cut haphazardly it will be difficult for the rose to grow back. Avoid bad and rough cuts, which damage the stem and tissue of the plant. The cut should always slope towards the bud, not too far away from it. You should make sure that you have removed all the dead wood before cutting the rose. Ensure the use of appropriate tools, dull and rusty tools can be harmful.

Pruning helps the plant gain its nutrition and energy and makes it stronger and healthier. You should never avoid this act of trimming your roses. By cutting away the dead wood and bugs, you ensure a healthy and fast growth. Roses are not nearly as difficult to maintain as many people think they are.
