    Hi All. Just wondering if some one can offer some help on how to prune these ( Photos) Rose bushes that have got out of control. Not sure if i prune them really low that they will survive ?
    Thank you.rose (1).JPGrose (2).JPG

      Yes, Wildcat, they would survive fine if you cut the rose down to, say, a third of it's size leaving some of the buds still on the stems to make next years growth. Perhaps a little sprinkling of Blood, Fish and Bonemeal, around the roots would give a help towards giving you more flowers next year along with, if you can remember it, a monthly feed of Tomato Feed. @wiseowl Perhaps our acknowledged Rose Expert could give you further good advice.

        Thank you for the reply ARMANDII. When you say cut them down to a third, i am not sure if there re any buds that low. The Blood, Fish and Bonemeal sounds like a great idea and of course will help with other roses i have in the garden.

              ARMANDII; Very interesting. Grateful thanks for the help. This will help me save these roses and hopefully have many a year of blooming.
              Kind regards Tony.

              You're more than welcome, Tony, and knowing that you will have a smile on your face when the Rose is looking good and flowering well next year is good enough for me.:love30::thumbsup::coffee:
