Uncompromised Pruning Process
Pruning your roses is easy, but it's like so many things in life, you need to do it regularly, every year in fact, to see results.
... some people just shear their roses about half way down and leave it at that. The problem with doing this is that you have not removed old dead wood, or suckers, or cleaned out built up debris, and in time, I think, you compromise the health of your plants and the quality of your flowers.
So skip the short cuts, and prune your roses properly and you'll be rewarded with really gorgeous flowers.
The above text came directly from a gardening website (link below), as did the exact details for carrying out the actual pruning process. I rather believe God Himself penned this piece because He NEVER compromises or takes short cuts - which is to say: "We can be assured of the unrivaled beauty of the blooms to come."
From a barren & seemingly dead sprig of wood grows a sublime flower and - with it - a fragrance equally so.
