ABSTRACT
The article discusses activities involved in the winter care of organic rose gardens. These activities include pruning, spraying and application of fertilizers. It states that pruning enhances next season's flower production by encouraging the plant to produce new wood. It also opens up the center of the bush to improve air circulation. Another activity is spraying, particularly after pruning because sprays applied during the dormant season have least impact on beneficial organisms. Applying fertilizer after pruning is also said to improve plant growth.
