The Best Method For Deadheading Roses
Deadheading, the act of removing spent rose blooms, is critical to stimulate further blooming and redirect resources to seed development and the creation of vibrant new blooms.
This process encompasses a two-step approach. First, cut off finished blooms at the base where they meet the parent stem, but leave any remaining buds or
blooms intact.
Second, for roses with multiple flowers, remove only dying blooms while leaving healthy clusters undisturbed. When all blooms in a cluster have wilted, remove the entire cluster.
This routine should be carried out throughout the flowering season, especially the second step which should be conducted after each flush of flowers.
Disinfect secateurs before and after use to prevent the spread of diseases. It’s recommended to wear protective clothing and systematically tackle large bushes section by section.
