Pruning and Spraying
– Choose a nice fine, still day – Remove any dead canes at the base. – Cut back any dead shoots or crossing branches, or anything too thin to carry flowers. – Shorten any remaining branches by at least a third. Cut back just above an outward facing bud. – Spray with a copper spray to attack any dormant diseases and will stop airborne fungus getting into the open cuts – Do not fertilise yet, wait until you see new growth from August .
