Pruning keeps the plant Healthy
“Pruning is an important and necessary step in growing roses. Pruning keeps the plant healthy. It promotes new growth, removes dead, broken or diseased canes and trains roses to a desired shape. Pruning encourages flowering, either more blooms or larger blooms, and is essential to keep modern rose varieties blooming repeatedly all summer long.”
I also thought the comments were pretty interesting, as anything that you do or undo will have mixed reactions. Keep pruning Matt and I look forward to the next blooms!
