How to deadhead roses to keep them blooming

If your roses are starting to wilt or show brown petals, you’ll need to know how to deadhead roses. Deadheading is essentially when you snip off spent (wilted) or faded flowers to encourage new blooms and healthy growth. This simple process tricks a rose bush into spending more energy on budding and flowering new roses, rather than wasting it on dying roses or developing seeds.

If you don’t know how to deadhead roses properly, this can encourage fungal infections that may lead to the stem dying. However, deadheading roses will keep your flowers tidy and more attractive in your backyard, so it’s well worth doing. 

What you will need

Bypass pruning shears

Gardening gloves

Container to dispose of the cuttings
