Home & Garden

  • Delight in gardening
    A couple a summers ago, James and Lynda Moore got a call from a local Do-it Best hardware store.
  • Putting unused spaces to work
    Many of us have one room in the house that doesn’t really have a job.
  • Garlic chives fit for gardens

Pruning roses

Roses that have flowered should be pruned to promote reblooming and general health. Use hand pruners to remove flower clusters back to just above a lower leaf, and take out suckers and wayward stems. Any leaves showing signs of blackspot also should be removed. Wear thorn-proof gloves and a long-sleeved shirt.
