Step 1: Using a clean, sharp Corona Aluminum Bypass Pruner and wearing extended sleeve rose gloves remove dead or damaged canes as well as small, twiggy ones.

Step 2: Only prune above the bud union. Remove canes that are growing towards the center of the shrub to create an open "vase" shape.

Step 3: Cut back remaining canes by about two-thirds. Make cuts just above an outward-facing leave node. Treat cane cuts with Bonide Pruning Sealer

Step 4: Remove all leaves from the remaining canes. Gather leaves to prevent the spread of any disease or bugs.

Step 5: Once new growth reaches 1 inch, feed with Dr. Earth® Rose & Flower Food.
