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. 

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
