Should I prune now?
Hi ~ I've never attempted to prune-hard, after the first surge of blooms in the month of June. Snow Queen & Cezanne are done & showed signs of the famous periodic hot summer wilt, while the others are still putting out a few here & there, they seem tired looking.
My ?? ~ will they benefit from hard pruning in mid season? Will the twines still have time to grow & fill out for Fall blooms?
Not knowing any better, I've always left them looking dried up ~ clean up some when I could & they usually bloom again after Aug when days get cooler again.
Your thought will be greatly appreciated!
