March is here and it is time to prune your roses. Newly planted roses which were planted from November until now should be pruned in the 3rd week of March, whilst more established roses can now be pruned.
Due to covid-19 and current restrictions we are regretfully unable to hold our pruning demonstrations on site, where we normally raise money for selected charities. However, to reach as many of our customers as we can and to assist with the pruning of roses, we have prepared time lapses, photos and videos, which we hope will assist you.
Please see below some videos showing you how to prune your roses and time lapses showing how your roses will look before and after pruning. You may be taken through to our brand new YouTube Channel.

If you need any further assistance, please call us on 01206 844008 between 2pm and 4pm on Tuesday 2nd, Wednesday 3rd or Thursday 4th March 2021, where our outside team have set some time aside to take your calls and guide you through any questions you may have. Outside of these hours, we may need to take your details down and the outside team may need to call you back, alternatively you can send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org, complete our online form on the ‘contact us’ page or send a message on our Facebook page.
We hope that in 2022 we can bring back our Face-to-Face pruning demonstrations on site and help raise money for our selected charities once again.
