I have around 30 Pink Peace tea roses which, because of the very mild winter so far, are starting to grow shoots. I live in central Scotland.
I previously cut them back to around 12"/14" in November to prevent wind damage, and I would normally cut them back again to 6" at the end of February.
Should I cut back now or wait until the end of February. Seems a waste to let them sprout now, then to cut away.
Any recent soft growth will be killed by the frosts we are now getting and cutting back now may promote even more if we get another mild spell so I would advise waiting until the usual time.
Will do. Thanks.
