We have several rose bushes…we live at 5300ft above sea level and came here from the desert, so I’ve never had roses before. I cut the dead bulbs off as they go bad, but last fall never ‘pruned’ any of the bushes as I’ve heard you should. This year we had about 1/3 the return of roses and actually one whole bush never bloomed…and it’s our largest one? I went and bought a really rich mulch and turned the soil beneath each bush about 3 weeks ago before adding the fresh soil hoping that the nutrients might help…it did somewhat, but all the people up here have roses and they have sooooo many more than us on each bush….tons…and they are soooooo big too. How do I get my rose bushes to produce like that for next year…and when and how is the best way to prune??? Thanks all!
