One of the most important ways to care for roses is to cut them back in the summer after they have bloomed.

This offers various advantages.

Roses are at their peak

in June and July

.

Around this time, most rose plants form their impressive blooms in all colors and shapes, which makes every hobby gardener's heart beat faster.

Once the roses have faded, it's time to cut them back.

And not just because withered flower heads in the garden are a sad sight.

That is why faded roses need to be cut back

If you remove faded flower heads, your rose bush will be stimulated to form new flowers and the flowers will grow evenly.

In addition, fungal infections and other rose diseases are prevented.

"If faded flowers are not cut off, the rose grows old.

It loses its willingness to bloom and its vitality

.

In this way , the plant no longer develops new shoots in the lower area,” informs the garden portal

Plantopedia

.

Growth and bud development are stunted as the plant wastes its energy producing seeds.

Incidentally, this also applies to other flowers such as geraniums, which is why you should always remove faded flowers.

So get to the pruning shears!

You should cut faded roses so that your rose bush blooms evenly and stays healthy.

Instructions: How to cut faded roses

The right way to proceed with pruning depends on the type and variety of rose:

  • Roses that bloom once:

    This type of rose only develops its flowers on the previous and perennial shoots.

    Therefore, they are cut back immediately after flowering in summer.

    Renewed shoots mature by winter and then produce new rose blossoms the following year.

    "In  the case of

    shrub roses, cut

     back the overgrown, faded shoots to their normal height, while cutting down the side shoots a little more," advise the experts from

    Gartenjournal.net

    .

    For

    rambler and cascade roses

    , long shoots are shortened and older branches are pruned to the base.

  • Roses that bloom more often:

     The shoot is cut back to the next fully developed leaf (5 to 9 parts).

    The one- to three-part leaf sitting directly under the flower does not count and may be removed.

    Pruning will encourage

    your rose to

    bloom again .

  • Perpetually flowering roses:

    This type of rose constantly sprout.

    The faded branch is simply cut out directly above the new shoot.

    After deeper topiary, it may take a little longer before the next bloom.

Cut about half a centimeter in front of the shoot and

always make the cut at an angle

- this allows rainwater to drain off better.

The weather should be warm and dry.

These ten mistakes can ruin your garden

Which roses not to cut

Incidentally,

wild roses are not cut back, just like rose hips.

Otherwise you will deprive yourself of the magnificent fruits in autumn.

Autumn is also the best time to plant roses.
