...pruning rose bushes..i LOVE my roses, i HATE pruning out the winterkill in the bushes..wahhhhhhhh...i have them half done..today should finish them..but i'm all scratched up.

i shouldn't complain, it took me years to find everbearing roses that would grow here..and these grow..i mean GROW !!! they are invasive !! but very pretty

Brenda you need proper attire. combine it maybe with a sexy look. Thick blalck cowhide gauntlets to the shoulder? Might need to wait until winter though to avoid heat stroke..

jenn, no sex anything going on here (disabled husband)..however..i like the idea.

my roses have gone totally mad this year..they are growing, spreading and blooming like total idiots..

i'm going to try planting bushes from hips this year..i'd love to have some on the higher banks around my ponds and when i try to move divisions they tend to die..but the hips would have a better chance of rotting (drought and stupid heat here)

Brenda, have you tried getting greenwood cuttings to root in soil?
