Fall pruning

ken-n.ga.mts(7a/7b)August 1, 2013

Well, it's getting close to that time of year for me to start pruning for the only show I'll be able to do this fall (9/28). I always allow my roses to rest a little during the summer. Don't feed June or July. Only water and remove the spent blooms. Will put down fert. and fish emulsion this weekend and give them a good kick for the fall. Anyone else out there doing any fall shows??

Good luck at your show!

We just finished our district show, and my society's show is this Saturday. I have nothing to enter (maybe Blushing KO). I hope to get some entries (I am Chair of Judges), but I'm afraid that our exhibitors are gearing up for mini nationals in NC in two weeks.
