How to Prune the Remontant Bushes to Large Flowers

This type of rose bush produces long erect branches at the end of which large flowers are carried which can usually also be cut .

Plants of this type tend to produce few branches from below and, if not carefully pruned, tend to form straight and long bushes that fill with wood towards the base and carry smaller and smaller flowers of poor quality, only at the top of the vegetation.

These rosebushes, precisely because of their aptitude to bloom several times throughout the season , must be bravely pruned to allow the plant to remain young , to form new vigorous stems that bear beautiful abundant flowers. It is therefore possible to eliminate even more than 60% of the ramifications of the plant:

  • eliminate dry, weak, too old and unproductive branches
  • shorten the branches by more than 2 years, preferably keeping the branches of the previous year
  • lower the plant to about 1/3 of its total height
