The trees are in their autumn beauty, The woodland paths are dry, Under the October twilight, the water Mirrors a still sky.  WB Yeats

Rose Care.

The final blooms are going over and the leaves begin to yellow, now is the time to trim and tidy your roses in preparation for winter.  Cut out anything that will wave about and damage in the winds, also the weak and insubstantial growth, check for damaged stems, and take those out too.  Clear all the leaves and sticks from the ground, they could harbour blackspot spores.  We recommend a treatment of Sulphur Rose if you live in an area thats bad for Blackspot, Rust or Mildew.  Give each rose a good sprinkle of bonemeal and fork over the ground lightly.

Roses in pots.

Any roses in pots need a little tidy and trim too, pop the pot onto feet so it can drain over the winter, roses hate to sit in water, make sure the pot is in a position to catch the rainwater and not sheltered under the eaves.  Don't move to the greenhouse, roses are fully hardy and will survive outdoors even in the harshest of winters.  If your rose has been in its pot for a long time it may be a good idea the re-pot it, wait for the leaves to yellow and fall then take it out of the pot and knock away all the soil, you can trim the roots if need be and prune the stems to a manageable length.  Use a good quality compost, multi-purpose is not enough for roses.  John Innes n3 or Rose, Tree and Shrub mix is good too.
