CSM Lilac thorn gloves help when you will be pruning just before the plant breaks dormancy after spring’s final frost.
This will be early in the year in warm climates, and anytime between January and April in cold climates.
If it’s old roses you are tending, prune them after blooming.
They bear flowers on last year’s wood.
Pruning roses is scary to many, but really, very good for the plants.
Becoming an accomplished rose pruner takes time and practice, but keep in mind that it is very hard to kill a rose with bad pruning.
While there is a great deal of disagreement among rose experts regarding how and when to prune roses, it is generally agreed that most mistakes will grow out very quickly and it is better to make a good effort at pruning roses, even if you make a few mistakes, than to let them grow rampant.
Timing is determined by the class of the rose plant and the hardy zone in which it is being grown.
Most rose pruning is done in the spring, with the blooming of the forsythia as a signal to get moving.
If you don’t have forsythia, watch for when the leaf buds begin to swell on your rose plants, meaning the bumps on the canes get larger and reddish in color.
You want to prune before those buds break open. This should be after the nightly hard frost has ended for your location.
