    I have 3 rose bushes in the front of my house New last summer.. they produce 3-4 roses each.. my husband cut them down to about 6 inches tall in the fall and already they are coming back fuller looking

    Trim in the spring or fall: remove any dead wood, trim back green stems by clipping just above an outward facing leaf bud.

    In very late winter or very early spring cut back all dead wood off the roses. Pruning should be done before the leaves start to grow, but I have trimmed them when we had leaves barely starting at the base and they still did great. Be sure to feed them potassium also for numerous blooms. I do this by throwing our peels back behind the bush, but you can grind them in the food processor and add a bit of water. Pour it at the base of the plant.
