How to prune - November

Pruning almost all bush and standard roses can be started once all the leaves have fallen. Remove dead or diseased branches, retaining and shortening the promising stems of new growth. This concentrates the rising sap into the best growth buds. Generously feed the roses. Hard prune fruit trees and bushes, removing larger branches to open up the centres.
