You are here: / / Do you have roses in your yard? Valentine’s Day is Prune Your Roses Awareness Day. OK, so we may have made that up. :) However, even though it may be winter, roses here bloom year round and this weekend is the perfect time to check yours! Bring the cuttings inside and make a lovely bouquet. Pro tips: Don’t prune more than a third of the plant. You want to prune crossing branches. Remove all dead portions from the shrub. And keep in mind shape and form while pruning.
