Easy Care Roses

Step 1: Trim Stems

Remove any wood that is dead and diseased, then cut back the main stems and sideshoots by one-third to a healthy, outward facing bud.

Step 2: Minimize for Strength

When fall arrives, cut back any extra-long whippy stems that could be vulnerable to damage by strong winter winds.

Step 3: Prune Gallica Roses to Main Stem

Gallica roses are pruned in much the same way as other old-fashioned roses, but cut the sideshoots back to the main stem, or to a shoot close to the main stem.
