Question Roses, Roses, and more Roses http://forum.doityourself.com/images/smilies/wall.gif

Hello,

Can someone give me a little advice about pruniing roses.
Here is the problem, a very dear friend (82) has this beautiiful
rose tree entry walk with about six or eight trees. However she
failed to prune the roses from last year and now they are starting to
bud. Can I still prune them so they will produce this year. They stems
are rather long and I i feel if do not prune them they will be to heavy for the
for the long stems and will look like crap.

Thank you so much for your help!
Kenny

You can prune roses pretty much anytime. The earlier the better. Are these climbing roses?

I don't know much about pruning roses, and I don't know if this will be helpful, but the "Sticky: A Treasure trove of garden information & Links." has some links on pruning roses. I don't know if it has what you are looking for, but it might be worth a try (if you haven't already tried it ).
