Rose care in the winter months

The best time to prune roses in Perth is during winter, once the plants have lost their foliage. Remove any branches that are totally dead, and prune any branches that cross each other. The aim is to open up the centre of the bush, so that air and sunshine can enter. Remove any old branches to encourage new growth. One third to one half of the bush can be removed. Always prune to an outward facing bud and cut at a 45 degree angle away from the bud.

Shrub, Old fashioned and climbing roses need to be pruned slightly differently to other roses and this is where the MCLA landscape maintenance team can help this winter.

Our garden maintenance staff are all trained in rose pruning. They have the knowledge to know when and what to spray and fertilise to get your roses off to a good start in spring.
