Home Living : July 7th 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 7, 2009 HOMELIVING Top roses a snip In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates We may be in the depths of winter but July's a busy month in the garden. It's pruning time for most deciduous plants -- they're the ones that lose their leaves in winter. Even roses fall into this category, though in some warmer suburbs roses seem keen to hang on to their leaves and flowers right through until spring. Despite this, it's important to have the strength of character to get stuck into them. Remove old unproductive branches, shorten long shoots and open up the bushes to sunlight. Without pruning, rose performance will gradually decline. Other deciduous plants thatcanbe pruned this month are the summer bloomers like crepe myrtles and hydrangeas (only cut back hydrangea stems that flowered last season). Spring bloomers such as blossom trees, may bushes and weigela should only be pruned after flowering in spring because pruning in winter will cut off incipient flowering wood and ruin the display before it starts. This also applies to spring- only-blooming roses such asbanksias. Good-quality secateurs are essential for a good pruning job. While the initial outlaycan seem expensive, good secateurs will last for many years if they're kept clean and stored in a dry place. It's also a great idea to wrap some brightly-coloured duct tape around the handle. Why? Because if you put your secateurs down in the garden and forget about them, the tape makes them easy to spot.
