Before we leave September, be sure to do your fall rose pruning. Roses cut back in September will give you a wonderful fall blooming period. Bushes should be cut back by about 1/3. Clean up any debris under the shrubs and start fertilizing again, applying a time release and/or organic fertilizer now, watering it in well, then begin a bi-weekly application of a water-soluble fertilizer through November.

A little work now will bring you great rewards until we hit our first frost!! If you have any questions, be sure to email me!
