1. Using a clean, sharp Corona Aluminum Bypass Pruner and wearing Boss Guardian Angel extended sleeve gloves remove dead or damaged canes as well as small, twiggy ones.
  2. Only prune above the bud union. Remove canes that are growing towards the center of the shrub to create an open "vase" shape.
  3. Cut back remaining canes by about two-thirds. Make cuts just above an outward-facing leave node. Treat cane cuts with Bonide Pruning Sealer.
  4. Remove all leaves from the remaining canes. Gather leaves to prevent the spread of any diseases or bugs.
  5. Once new growth reaches 1-inch, feed with Dr. Earth Rose & Flower Food.
