Preparing Your Roses for an Autumn Rebloom

August is the perfect time to go ahead and prune your bush roses back to about half their existing size.  It's important to remember to fertilize with an all purpose fertilizer and add some blood meal to the mixture as well.  Remulch if necessary.  Spray with a insecticide and a fungicide mixture when they flush out with their new growth.   Now your roses will be in full bloom once again for the autumn season.  They love the cooler nights that are just around the corner.  Seat back and enjoy....
