Pruning

It’s Spring again and our thoughts turn to our annual pruning . . .

In conjunction with our sponsors DARLAC we will be trying to unwrap the mystery of pruning. There has, over the years, been a lot of old nonesense spoken about pruning roses. March is the time to get our roses into the right condition to produce a wealth of summer blooms. Grab your secateurs, put on your gloves and get oyur roses ready for summer.

In this video Adam Frost pretty much follows the advice that we give . . . . . prune using the 3D COW

First remove the DEAD, the DAMAGED and the DISEASED – the three Ds

Then cut off the CROSSED, the OLD and the WEEDY – the COW

Well done Adam . Isn’t it about time you joined the Society as you said you would at Chorley Flower Show?
