Produced by: Paul Zimmerman Roses
We've talked before about removing old canes every now and then. It makes room for new ones that will produce more flowers. Mid to late summer is a great time to do this. The new canes can start growing in plenty of time to harden off for winter.
Doing this for the first time is scary. But I've done it for years and I always get new growth, so jump right in. If you have questions, or aren't sure where to start, you can ask me on our Roses Are Plants, Too discussion forum. You can also post photos and we'll try to point out which canes to start with. www.paulzimmermanroses.com/forum.

Everyone loves roses. If you always wanted to add roses to your garden but were too intimidated by their diva reputation, Roses Are Plants, Too is the blog for you.
Paul Zimmerman has grown thousands of roses for over 15 years and for ten of those years in a sustainable manner. His common-sense approach shows you how to integrate garden roses into your landscape by looking at them as nothing more than flowering shrubs, all the while encouraging you to trust your own "Gardener's Instincts" in the care of these beautiful plants.
You will learn how to prune and train climbing roses, and how to get the most "ka-bloom" out of your shrub, David Austin and Knockout rose bushes. You'll get tips on growing roses organically and trimming them all season to keep their shape. You'll discover the difference between own-root and grafted roses, and more. Much of the instruction will be via videos that Paul produces himself!
Paul Zimmerman ran a rose care company in Los Angeles before moving to South Carolina to start Ashdown Roses. Now he focuses on rose education and teaching via Paul Zimmerman Roses. He lectures, gives workshops, and judges rose trials around the world, and it is this experience he brings to this blog.
Whether you are new to roses or an experienced grower, Paul will open your garden to the vast diversity our national flower offers.
