How Do I Prune Roses?
How do I prune this thing?
We moved to the Memphis area four months ago and your show was one of the very first we heard. We were moving in on a Saturday morning and had a radio set up on the counter to listen for the weather.
Here is my question. There is a rose bush here that the owner planted 15 years ago, they said it was called a "Mr. Lincoln". It is so fragrant and has the most beautiful big red blooms.
The problem is that the plant has looks to have gotten out of hand, if it were on a trellis it would reach the eves of the house. We have never lived in the south and honestly, we don't know a thing about gardening! How do I prune this? And the follow up question is when do I prune it? Can I do it now or do I have to wait until fall?
