Wake up Call --- Late Date Pruning of roses in Delhi - Punjab region


For obtaining  better vegetative growth and quality of flowers in Rose, in Punjab, Harayana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh region the rose plant should be pruned during 6th October to l7th November. I just finished pruning my roses, although 2 days late but still better late than never.

Here is a Photo and the method how I pruned my Roses, in my garden in Ludhiana, Punjab.

Notice the swollen bud just below the cut, the swollen bud is pointing outwards and also the cut is tapered at around 45 degrees and the slant of the cut is higher near the bud.
