Dead­head your roses

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do This Week -

Many rose bushes strug­gled a lit­tle in the very hot, dry weather and went into a state of semi-dor­mancy, but the cooler weather and rain in Au­gust en­cour­aged them to make fresh new growth and more flower buds. This late flush of roses in the gar­den is very wel­come and if the weather stays mild and sunny they’ll often carry on flow­er­ing through un­til the end of the month or even into early Oc­to­ber. To help keep the roses flow­er­ing re­move faded blooms on a reg­u­lar ba­sis by cut­ting or snap­ping off the old flower heads.
