I was wondering if all these dead leaves will fall off this rose bush or should I take them off. There are buds everywhere. I will prune some but wondering if these leaves should be taken off as well.
Many thank yous.
The dead leaves should be removed to avoid disease. In late winter or early spring, prune hard (back to 10 -18 inches) and reduce sideshoots to 2 or 3 buds ( this can be done now).
