The roses cover a wide variety of ligneous plants, which are usually cultivated in gardens or terraces, with a mainly ornamental and decorative purpose. It is important to know how to prune rose plants, so they look perfectly in our garden. For this, it is necessary to pay attention to the following aspects to ensure a good state of conservation and protection of the plant:
Pruning season. It is done at the end of winter, when the frosts have finished, and the growth and development of the buds has not yet begun. It is advisable to prune once a year. However, this action can be completed with another pruning in the middle or late autumn, to remove the withered flowers and remains of dead plants.

How to make the cut. First of all, we need to make sure that we have appropriate and clean tools. The pruning shears must be correctly sharpened.

Strong buds should be left longer.
