How To: Fertilize & deadhead roses

Fertilize & deadhead roses

In this how-to video, you will learn how to fertilize and deadhead roses. Late summer fertilization is okay for these roses. Make sure to water them in well, as this is key. Deadheading in late summer will give you a fall bloom cycle with the roses. Deadheading will mean cutting off dead blooms. Hips are dead blooms that have fertilized. These make seeds and some are either sterile or will actually grow. To properly deadhead, go down to the second or third five-leaf. Cut at a 45 degree angle about a quarter of an inch above the cane. Take the middle bloom and break it out. This allows you to get fluorescence. Very long canes should be tied up so that when the blooms get larger, they will have proper support. This video shows you useful tips for having great roses.
