And wind damage. How far back can I cut is what I really would like to know. They are old garden variety roses. I live in Atlanta
Hi Renee, are they Knock Out Roses or something else?
No, they are the old garden variety, David Austin's several different ones. I have one that is in pretty bad shape and it was so pretty just a couple of weeks back.
This link says it better than I can in a shorter amount of words!
yes it makes roses regrow faster and rebloom faster an better
Thanks to everyone...I did my pruning over the past two days...I think even the badly damaged one is going to make a good recovery. I am very happy with the results. The David Austin info. was very helpful. :)
