Pruning like a Pro

The end of July is always an interesting time of the year for me. It’s the time when I need to make my secateurs sharp, and then go roaming the streets of Little Chelsea, vigorously pruning my neighbours’ pavement roses (whether they want them done or not – or even notice until they suddenly start looking so fabulous when they grow out!). It’s also interesting from the point of view that no matter how many times you watch an expert prune a rose properly, the next time pruning season comes around, everyone wants to see roses being essentially... annihilated. So what is it about pruning that has people in a tizzy so much of the time? With the exception of ‘how can I sort out my lemon tree?’,
