Roses Bloom Best with Late Winter Care

Roses Bloom Best with Late Winter Care

Roses perform better and bloom earlier with increased vigor, when they receive care in February.  Many rose lovers look for Presidents Day (February 20th) as the time to begin pruning their rose bushes.  Roses should be lowered in height, thinned and have the deadwood removed at this time.  The bushes can be mulched and rose systemic applied, if desired.  These steps will help give your roses a good start to the new growing season.  Burns Feed Store carries the items necessary to provide your roses with this late winter care.  We have several kinds of mulch, rose systemic, gloves, rubber boots, pruning gear and many other rose care products available.  Our specialist at Burns Feed can assist you in selecting the products you need to grow beautiful roses through-out the year.
