ABOUT GAYE’S PROGRAM:
Without question, pruning roses (or any other plant for that matter) is the most intimidating task that a gardener undertakes.
“Should I cut this off or leave it?”, “What if I make a mistake?”, “Can I just leave it and let nature take its course?” These are all self-doubts that we encounter in our gardening life when it comes to cutting off parts of plants that we worked so hard to grow. Compounding one’s own doubts, is the misinformation that a gardener finds on the internet.
This program helps the gardener work through the myths of pruning; provides an easy step-by-step approach to pruning any type of rose; helps identify early signs of pests/disease that can be taken care of during the pruning process so that the effects of these maladies can be avoided once the roses break dormancy; as well as share how she boosts spring garden performance with a few steps that are easy to implement once bushes have been pruned.
