I highly recommend Select Roses in Langley for Wet Coast-friendly rose selections. This weekend Mar 18-19 and Mar 25 2017) Brad Jalbert is doing a Rose Pruning session at the nursery, free-of-charge, just long enough to feel you’ve got useful information, but not so much that you’re overwhelmed. This is what Brad says about rose pruning:
This is, by far, the most feared yet easiest part of rose growing!
I would love to talk to the person who first tried to make it sound so difficult.
Come spend a half an hour with me, and you will return to your garden confident in your ability to prune any type of rose.
If you’re not in the area, or can’t make it, I’ll be doing my own roses pretty soon, so I’ll document it all for you readers.
