I meant to share this earlier in the year but totally forgot. If you plan to grow roses this year, it may be helpful.
A repeat blooming rose will keep producing flowers all summer, as long as you deadhead it when needed. To “deadhead” a plant means to remove any withered or dead flowers. It often promotes increased flowering of the plant. However, there’s a right way to deadhead roses.
This article includes a short video that demonstrates the preferred method to deadhead roses. There are also some fantastic photos of several beautiful roses. I think one of my favorites is ‘Fourth of July,” which is pictured at the end of the post.
