Dilip's 2006 Garden Journal

Saturday, March 31, 2007

I finished pruning the roses, which I started doing a few days ago. The most dramatic changes are with Heritage, which was up to 6' tall by maybe 5' wide, and Habitat for Humanity, which had many long arched canes, some more than 8' tall. I am concerned for several hybrid teas, such as all three Double Delights and Moonstone which, after pruning, either have no canes above the mulch or just one. But the unhealthy canes had to be removed. You can see the main rose bed pruned below. Also, I am including pictures from yesterday of the stalk crabapple tree's blossoms.
