Hedge Roses

They say you will get die back if done in the Autumn but is wind rock more damaging?



My RHS book says to cut back by about a third to avoid wind damage - then prune in the spring as you normally would. I suppose that this would give you the leeway to cut back any shoots that have died back???? I haven't got any hedge roses, so I haven't any experience of doing it. Read the answer to the next question you asked - it does give an alternative to pruning in the autumn.

Thanks Spitzhenry, sounds good advice, This wonderful website is helping give me that little bit of confidence I need, although armed with the books, by the time you have studdied it all my itching secuteer fingers get a bit rash and confused. I do love my wonderful displays I have been getting in my maturing garden but the time has come for some discipline and order! I want to be tidy but must not be over zealous! I fear the outcome!! experienced voices as it seems to a personal question is wonderful, thanks everyone for the time..
